RSO Board of Directors 2017-07-20T13:10:52+00:00

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 Fall Scientific Assembly. Currently, there is both a resident and student Board of Directors; however, in November of 2017 they will be combining forces.

Please click below for more information on how to get involved and to see what positions will be available in the upcoming elections. As always, please don’t ever hesitate to contact any of us with questions, concerns or suggestions you may have.
