RMAP BoD Announcement- July 2017

As July opens, another key member of the RMAP Board of Directors (BoD) will be moving on. Tom Cooney has announced his resignation from Drive Shop and plans to establish another automotive-based business. The BoD thanks Tom for his years of valuable help and advice on behalf of RMAP and wishes him the best of luck in future endeavors.

RMAP has long relied on our affiliate members at AMS, Rocky Mountain Redline and Drive Shop to help the organization run effectively. As a volunteer board, the help and participation by our fleet providers is invaluable. Moving forward, the RMAP BoD is now focused on the upcoming Rocky Mountain Driving Experience (RMDE) in August.
