• 2008 Report of the Secretary-Treasurer

  • I am pleased to report that the Society accepted 4,069 new members during the year 2008.

    We annually promote membership in our Society to new radiology residents and medical students. Through this year's promotional efforts 2,983 radiology residents and medical students joined the Society (1,413 new Members-in-training, 1,124 new Corresponding Members-in-training, 92 Fellows, and 354 Medical Students). We are pleased to see the radiologists-in-training and medical students take advantage of the great opportunities offered to them by joining the Society. Members-in-training and medical students do not pay dues, have free access to RSNA online journals and InteractED, are allowed free admission to the RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting, and may subscribe to the printed copy of Radiology and RadioGraphics, at a highly subsidized rate.

    Financial Statements

    The financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2005, reflect positive earnings for the Society.

    For the fourth straight year the RSNA has experienced financial growth due to controlling its expenses and maintaining its revenue sources. In addition, the Society's investment portfolios had positive returns. This is especially important for the Society's Research and Education Foundation, as its ability to fund grants is directly impacted by the return on investments. The continue financial growth of the Society has helped increase its reserves, which helps protect the RSNA from any significant economic downturns and provides available funds for future programs and initiatives.

    KPMG LLP completed its annual audit of the Society's financial statements issuing an unqualified opinion, indicating that KPMG LLP found no material differences to the financial information presented in the Society's year-end financial statements. In addition, KPMG 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 KPMG LLP, as of June 30, 2005. 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.
