I am pleased to report that the Society accepted 3,318 new members during the year 2007.
We annually promote membership in our Society to new radiology residents and medical students. Through this year's promotional efforts 2,455 radiology residents and medical students joined the Society (1,139 new Members-in-Training, 870 new Corresponding Members-in-Training, 109 Fellows, and 337 Medical Students).

The Society continues to experience financial growth as a result of maintaining its revenue sources and at the same time controlling its expenses. In addition, the Society's investment portfolios had positive returns. This is especially important for the Society's Research & Education Foundation, as its ability to fund grants is directly impacted by the return on investments. The continued financial growth of the Society has helped increase its reserves, which helps protect RSNA from any significant economic downturns and provides available funds for future programs and initiatives.
Wolf & Company LLP completed its annual audit of the Society's financial statements issuing an unqualified opinion, indicating that Wolf & Company LLP found no material differences to the financial information presented in the Society's year-end financial statements. In addition, Wolf & Company LLP indicated to the Audit Committee that it did not find any material weaknesses in the Society's internal accounting procedures.
The following Balance Sheet and Statement of Activities have been condensed from the year-end audit report prepared by Wolf & Company LLP, as of June 30, 2007. The detailed audited report is kept on file at the RSNA's Headquarters: Radiological Society of North America, 820 Jorie Boulevard, Oak Brook, IL 60523. It is available for review there by members of the RSNA.Theresa C. McLoud, M.D.Secretary-Treasurer
