The RSO Board of Directors serves as the governing body for the organization and is made up of both resident and student officers. The elected individuals work tirelessly to ensure our member’s interests are met on every front, including providing exclusive educational opportunities, benefits, networking and support.

Officers are elected by their peers during the RSO general membership meeting that takes place each year at the Scientific Assembly.
