The Rubber Association of Canada to Propose Name Change

RAC to Propose Name Change

The-Rubber-Association-of-Canada-LogoAt the June 19 Rubber Association of Canada’s annual members’ meeting, the association plans to introduce a special resolution to call for a motion to change the association’s name to Tire and Rubber Association of Canada/L’Association canadienne du pneu et du caoutchouc.

“As many of our members know, the RAC has been discussing changing the name of the corporation for some time. This initiative is born of the idea our association’s name should more accurately reflect who we are and what we do. It in no way changes the focus or emphasis of what your association is doing for you currently or in the fore¬seeable future. The proposed name change adds to who we are – it does not take anything away. It is merely a better descriptor,” said the association in an official press release.

The annual general meeting will also see the election of the new board of directors, in addition to a second resolution to approve the new Articles of Continuance, a legal requirement under Canada’s Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (CNCA).

According to RAC, the board of directors has taken the necessary steps to review and update the by-laws, which was sent to Members on May 6. The continuance process enables RAC to change its name when it files the continuance, which is what we have the association has elected to do.
