The Rubber Association of Canada (RAC) members have passed a resolution introduced at its annual general meeting on June 19, 2014, to change the association’s name to Tire and Rubber Association of Canada/L’Association canadienne du pneu et du caoutchouc.
The RAC says it has been discussing changing the name of the corporation for some time to more accurately reflect what the group is and what it does.
“It in no way changes the focus or emphasis of what your association is doing for you currently or in the foreseeable future. The proposed name change adds to who we are -- it does not take anything away. It is merely a better descriptor,” the group told members in its newsletter.
When the association canvassed the members earlier this year about the name change, 69% supported the name Tire and Rubber Association of Canada.
