The Rally Promoter Association of Canada is led by a core group of directors, each with their areas of expertise. As we move closer to a WRC event, the board of directors may change and expand as the demands dictate. People who feel they can bring something unique to RPAC are encouraged to reach out to us and express your interest as we will eventually have a broad range of positions to fill.
