    Trade group rebrands to solidify its role as the Voice of America’s MLPs

    Washington, D.C. – September 8, 2015 – The advocacy group formerly known as the National Association of Publicly Traded Partnerships (NAPTP) today announced it has officially rebranded itself as the Master Limited Partnership Association (MLPA). MLPA remains the nation’s only trade association representing the MLP industry – working to advance the needs of companies, investors and service firms alike.

    “For more than 30 years our organization has adapted to reflect the changes in the MLP marketplace,” said Mary Lyman, executive director of MLPA. “Our rebrand is yet another example of how we strive to represent a dynamic industry and, more importantly, position ourselves to be the strongest advocate for our members in Washington, D.C. and across the country.”

    As part of this initiative, the association also announced that a newly redesigned webpage – www.MLPAssociation.org – would serve as the digital home for both members and external audiences. The site includes resources for investors and policymakers, as well as trade media interested in following the association’s activities.

    “We are excited to see the next iteration of our association come to life with the new name and to solidify MLPA as the ‘Voice of America’s MLPs’ when it comes to navigating the public policy challenges and market growth opportunities that lie ahead,” said Randy Fowler, chairman of MLPA and a director and chief administrative officer of Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners L.P.
