• 2013 Report of the Secretary-Treasurer

  • I am pleased to report that RSNA membership continues to reach new record levels. In 2013, the Society accepted 6,410 new members and total membership grew to a record 53,031, an increase of 3.7% from last year.

    We annually promote membership in our Society to new radiology residents and medical students. Through this year's promotional efforts 4,753 radiology residents and medical students joined the RSNA (1,465 new Members-in-training, 2,413 new Corresponding Members-in-training, 163 Fellows, and 712 Medical Students).

    We are pleased to see our specialty’s future leaders taking advantage of the great opportunities offered to them through RSNA membership. Members-in-training and medical students do not pay dues, have free access to RSNA benefits like Online Education and myRSNA, are allowed free admission to the RSNA Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting, and receive electronic access to the journals Radiology and RadioGraphics or subscribe to the printed versions of the journals at a highly subsidized rate.

    Financial Statements 

    The Society continues to experience financial growth. This is a result of maintaining its revenue sources and at the same time controlling its expenses. The return on investments is especially important for the Society’s Research and Education Foundation, as its ability to fund grants is directly impacted by investment earnings.

    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, 2012. 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.
