RSAC is a mechanism created to address the need for a more cooperative approach to FRA rulemaking. Officially established in 1996, RSAC is composed of representatives from all facets of the railroad industry, from railroads to labor to industry associations. It is chaired by the FRA Associate Administrator for Safety. NRC is a voting member on RSAC. Through the RSAC process we help to ensure the creation of effective regulatory regimes that do not impose undue burdens on rail contractors. NRC sits on a number of RSAC Working Groups created to deal with the specifics of certain RSAC tasks.
NRC Marketing Committee
For the first time in our 41-year history, the NRC is working through the efforts of a dedicated Marketing Committee to drive the Association’s industry presence and ensure its brand is fully reflective of their fundamental commitment to supporting Member Companies. Directed under the chairmanship of Russ Ghel with Holland, this Committee is responsible for producing a digital and content strategy that ultimately captures organic media and industry interest within the rail construction-maintenance community and beyond.
