In order to ensure that the operations of the CRPA run smoothly, we have established a number of Committees. Each one performs a very important function within the Association, and is completely formed of volunteers from the membership. We are always looking for more members to volunteer on any of the committees. If you are interested, please contact the Secretariat.

Conference Committee/ Comité des congress
Although there is a local organizing committee for the conference each year, the CRPA Conference Committee serves as a sort of umbrella group which lays down guidelines and rules that must be followed each year. This ensures some consistency between the conferences, provides a foundation for a new local committee to build upon, and ensures that lessons learned from previous conferences are applied to future events.
Gary Wilson (chair/ président)
Students and Young Professionals/ Étudiants et jeunes professionnels
We recognize the importance of students in maintaining and growing the organization, which is why there is a committee devoted entirely to student affairs. This group works to increase student membership in the organization and to provide them with resources that will help them in their students and future careers. They also administer the annual Anthony J. MacKay Student Paper Contest. Read the SYPCOM Terms of Reference here.
