Stephen Kochersperger, the Postal Service’s acting historian, will speak at a historians’ colloquium in Bern, Switzerland, on Thursday, Feb. 1.
The Universal Postal Union, or UPU, is presenting the “Achieving ‘A Single Postal Territory’: A Global Promise — Past and Present” event as part of the Bern-based organization’s 150th anniversary.
Kochersperger will speak about the transnational influence on the development of the U.S. postal system. He will deliver his remarks from USPS headquarters in Washington, DC.
A live stream of the colloquium, which runs through Friday, Feb. 2, will be available on UPU TV. No registration is required.
Employees who are unable to stream video from external sites on postal computers can use a personal device to watch the event while off the clock. The UPU website has more information on the program.
