The Postmaster General’s Mailers’ Technical Advisory Committee (MTAC) is a venue for the USPS to share
technical information with mailers, and to receive their advice and recommendations on matters concerning
mail-related products and services, in order to enhance customer value and expand the use of these products
and services for the mutual benefit of Mailing Industry stakeholders and the Postal Service.
MSMA has been a member of MTAC since 1990. Join us to learn more about MTAC, and hear about what
was discussed at the most recent quarterly MTAC meeting. These are issues that will affect us all.
