motivational speakerOn July 16, 2013 I was am inspirational speaker for the National Association of College and University Mail Systems conference.

The other inspirational guest speaker Ruth Goldway,  chairman of the United States Postal regulatory commission, gave a motivational speech about postal regulatory updates.

Goldway was first appointed by Clinton in 1988 and and since been reappointed many times.

The United States postal services domestic mail manual is apparently one of the most complicated documents ever written. While it may seem simple to get a peice of mail delivered across the country, it is actually a very complicated procedure fueled by policy, procedure, documentation and even politics.

Postal services in the United states is a 65 billion dollar industry. Although it is shrinking, it's still there. Postal services has lost 25 percent of it's volume in the last 10 years.

The guest speaker talked breifly about exogent postal rate cases, whereby the postal service can increase postal rates. This needs to be filed by end of August to the first week in September.

Thanks to email and other instant messaging venues, mail volumes have declined significantly.  The USPS struggles to make money and will end most years losing upwards of a billion dollars.

The inspirational speaker for United States postal services ended her motivational speech with the reminder that the USPS is an iconic institution. Unfortunately, current postal leadership is focusing on efficiency at the expense of innovation, brand dominance and strategic marketing. Nonetheless the USPS is a strong, successful institution.
