What is RAC?

The Regional Association Council (RAC) exists to foster cooperation and positive relationships among the regional and national not-for-profit trade associations engaged in the promotional products industry; provide a governance and administrative structure for the participating regional associations; coordinate planning and support for meetings, cooperative projects and services; and to develop and implement strategic programs and services that meet the common interests and needs of the industry.

Any regional association whose members conduct business in the promotional products industry is qualified for membership in RAC.  Each member shall appoint a person to be its RAC delegate, and this person shall represent, vote and act for the member in all RAC affairs.  There are 27 regional associations in the promotional products industry, all of which belong to RAC.

RAC members are organized into five districts, as approved by the delegate assembly. Each member’s delegate shall form the membership of the district governing body.  From those bodies, two delegates will be selected to serve on the RAC Board of Directors.
