Opportunities for Policymakers to Learn Before They At

Tomorrow, the President's budget expected to recommend changes in law that will jump start a multi-year process of revamping postal law and the Postal Service's business model.    Just in time, the Center for Research in Regulated Industries of Rutgers University has announced three conferences that should help stakeholders and policymakers evaluate the options that will be on the table.   The titles of three conferences below are linked to web pages on the Postal Journal that provide more details and information on how to register.

April 1, 2011 Washington DC - Advanced Workshop on Postal Policy: What is a Viable Postal System?

The day long program presents ten views as to the future of the Postal Service.  These views come from the Postal Service, the GAO, the Postal Service-Office of Inspector General, customers, consultants to the industry and a representative of Canada Post.

May 18-20, 2011, Skytop, PA, USA - 30th Eastern Conference in Regulatory Economics
The three-day program presents thirteen sessions that include 39 presentations on a wide range of topics on operating, marketing, and regulatory issues affecting both the Postal Service and other industries subject to  economic regulation.   This conference presents a unique forum for those who are interested in postal policy to discuss current postal policy issues in an informal manner.  The conference also allows those whose primary interest is postal policy to learn about new theories in economic regulation that might provide ideas as to the appropriate regulatory model for whatever business model is created for the Postal Service in the next few years.

June 1-4, 2011, St. Helier, Jersey – 19th Conference on Postal Economics
The four day program presents the latest in economic, policy and legal research relating to issues affecting the postal market worldwide.
