USPS Opening General Session

A well attended extraordinary event. Don't miss 2023!

Postmaster General Louis DeJoy delivered the 2022 General Session Keynote Address. The Postal Service has embarked upon a 10-year transformation to dramatically improve on-time delivery performance, to be financially self-sustaining, and to operate as the high performing organization customers expect and deserve. Postmaster General DeJoy peeled back the curtain on the implementation of the Delivering for America plan. He revealed the current state of progress with business and growth strategy – and the new organizational structure, network, infrastructure, and investment approaches.  

The Delivering for America transformation has put the Postal Service on a new trajectory with new opportunities for the mailing and shipping industry. Attendees heard first-hand from our Postmaster General about the journey toward a modern Postal Service better able to support the growth of the industries and businesses it serves. 

2023 promises to deliver the latest updates that will keep the industry moving forward – Delivering for America.
