With no in-person attendance, the Postal Service is cancelling the previously scheduled public comment period that was to have been conducted following the adjournment of the meeting.
The Board is expected to discuss the following items at the Aug. 6 meeting beginning at 9:00 a.m. ET:
Open session meetings of the Board of Governors are available on live audio webcasts at http://about.usps.com/who/leadership/board-governors/briefings/welcome.htm.
