PCC Membership

Welcome to the Chicago PCC.


Price Change & Mail Classification

Join us on Thursday, January 17, 2019

at 433 W. Harrison St, 3rd Floor

Registration starts at 8 AM


The Chicago PCC is providing you with a thorough overview of the 2019 rate changes that effect letters, flat, and package services. 


USPS Rates are changing on January 27 -  We're going to tell you where are the savings, not just the increases. Examples: First Class 1-ounce letter rates are going up, but the 2nd-ounce surcharge is going down, significantly. Heavier is better. First Class Packages are significantly changed by the addition of zone-based pricing similar to Priority Mail and the other package services.  Now postage for your First Class package is determined by weight and the distance traveled. This program provides you with an understanding of how to navigate these changes.


And, we will be telling you about the 2019 USPS Promotions - Learn about all the promotions offered for 2019  Including receiving postage credit for using BRM/CRM/ShareMail and the 2% postage discount with Informed Delivery campaigns.  


Our Presenter  Stephen Colella is a recipient of the USPS Industry Excellence Award for Progressive Mailing Practices in the Advertising Mail and Print Industry.  Starting his career in 1973, Mr. Colella has held a variety of management positions in production, customer service, sales, and postal affairs.
