MISSISSAUGA, Ontario (March 3, 20145) — The board of directors of the Rubber Association of Canada (RAC) plans to meet early in March to discuss changing the group's name, according to the association's February e-Newsletter.
The proposed name change is part of the RAC's re-branding effort to better reflect the association's goals and membership, the e-Newsletter said.
A recent member survey, the association said, generally showed agreement among RAC members that including the word "tire" in the Mississauga-based association's name would more accurately reflect the scope of the association.
The board will have the final decision on whether the RAC's name should be changed, the e-Newsletter said. The association's re-branding efforts will be unveiled at its annual general meeting in June.
When is the last time you attended one of the national tire industry trade shows, such as SEMA, ITEC or the North American Tire & Retread Expo?
|I try and take in at least one show a year.||
|I usually attend one every few years.||
|There are so many tire maker and distributor meetings each year, I don’t see a need to attend one of the national shows.||
|I don’t find value in these shows and haven’t been to one in years.||
|I’d like to but I am too busy||
