The article reports that the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) has canceled its annual meeting to be held in April 2009, in reaction to the struggling economy. Instead, it plans to hold regional events for its members. An RMA official said the consensus was to cancel the affair. The group now will hold a few smaller events that will offer easy access to its members, giving them the chance to network the same way they do at the annual meeting, he said.
