Baruch CAPS to Sponsor Roundtable Discussion at Buy New York.

Business Editors

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 2003

Baruch College Continuing and Professional Studies (CAPS) will sponsor a CIO Roundtable discussion on Friday, March 21st, as part of the Buy New York campaign to help encourage local businesses to consider New York-based companies for their tech needs. Baruch CAPS is also a media sponsor of Buy New York along with Computer Associates, IBM, Information Builders, Microsoft, NYC Economic Development Corp. and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

The Buy New York campaign is the brainchild of the New York Software Industry Association, which wants to diminish the trend of New York companies shipping IT projects to other cities or overseas. The roundtable discussion will begin at 9 a.m. in the hotel's Grand Ballroom E. Friday's event at the Marriott New York Brooklyn will be the trade association's kick-off event. Numerous IT vendors and over 100 IT buyers, including private companies and government agencies, will be present. For more information about the Buy New York campaign, log onto www.buyny.nysia.org.
