European Public Affairs Consultancies Association (EPACA)
European Public Affairs Consultancies Association (EPACA) was established in January 2005 to resist regulation of lobbyists in Europe.
EPACA's members include the major lobbying consultancies in Europe. It is co-ordinated by a little known lobbying company called Houston Consulting Europe run by a former UK diplomat. The fact that it currently has no website indicates that it is a paper 'Association' with one aim in mind: To resist regulation of lobbyists in the EU.
EPACA's website address is www.epaca.org.
