ROSSLYN, VA September 25, 2006-NEMA Business Information Services, the economic analysis and market research arm of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, has announced the release schedule for its monthly Electroindustry Business Confidence Index (EBCI) report. The EBCI report is expected to be posted to NEMA's website between 8:30 AM and 9:00 AM Eastern on the last Wednesday of each month (or on the next business day, should NEMA's offices be closed).
