National Presidents Conferences at Convention typically see 250-300 presidents in attendance. Having a small room and limiting attendance to 150 due to room size, and priority given to presidents, I believe is a thinly veiled attempt to restrict attendance and access to the postal press association and others wanting to report on or Facebook Live or YouTube the debate.
They are also having it at night to reduce attendance as well.
I think all the presidents should object! – RZ

The entire debate process is scheduled for Sunday, August 14, 2022 for no more than approximately 2 hours from 4:30 PM-6:30 PM. We will stay in the NPC room that holds a maximum of 150. Priority attendance is to state and local presidents.
A questionnaire will be sent by email from the NPC website to submit questions. One question can be submitted on the form at a time. Additional question (s) can be submitted on a separate form. Questions are limited to the business of the APWU only.
The NPC will record the event and upload it to YouTube and share it on the NPC website. This is the only recording that is to take place during the debate. Please refrain from using any other recording device during the debate.”
