VIENNA, Va., June 21, 2002 — The Newspaper Association of America and independent energy consulting firm Affiliated Power Purchasers International of Salisbury, Md., have entered into a partnership to assist NAA members in finding and purchasing affordable energy.
Through the Energy Buyers Program, APPI evaluates electricity and natural gas suppliers to select reliable, low-cost alternatives for its customers.
Energy management is among the topics being discussed at NEXPO®2002, NAA’s annual technical exposition and conference, taking place June 22-25 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer NAA members access to APPI’s services to help them take advantage of the opportunities presented by energy deregulation,” said NAA Senior Vice President of Membership Reggie Hall. “We hope it will help them gain greater control over their energy spending, which is a significant cost in the publishing business.”
Members of the press interested in covering NEXPO2002 can register onsite at the NAA Press Office in room 204B at the convention center beginning Friday, June 21; phone 407-685-4843. All media will be asked for photo identification and current press credentials, or a letter from an assigning editor on company letterhead.
Sponsors of NEXPO2002 are: Brainworks Software, Baseview Products, Flint Ink, Harris Publishing Systems, Heidelberg, Olive Software, SAP America, and SAXoTECH Inc.
