RMA restructures.

RMA restructures

The Rubber Manufacturers Association has restructured and formed four different "blocks of work" or business centers. The functions of each block are as follows:

Technical and standards

- coordinate and communicate industry positions to international standards-setting bodies (ISO, ANSI, ASTM), and develop an industry consensus on technical matters;

Information and statistics

- collect and distribute marketing data for members;

Public affairs

- provide the vehicle for a single industry voice before federal, state, regulatory and legislative bodies; address unwarranted government regulation and promote industry views on transportation and international trade issues, as well as environmental, health and safety concerns in the workplace;

General products group

- provide a network of services for a range of manufacturing interests; may expand member programs to include technical training in rubber and plastics technology.

* A separate finance and administration department will provide all work blocks with traditional accounting, printing, mailing and telecommunications services. The existing nine product divisions will reorganize into two groups - Tire Group and General Products Group - which will operate under a common board of directors. RMA's George A. White was named vice president and Steven Butcher was named manager of the General Products Group.
