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.
