Directors and Staff

RSGS benefits from the experience and expertise of our Board of Directors (all volunteers) who guide our overall strategy. Some members of the Board represent the Committees (also of specialist volunteers) that have a particular responsibility for certain key areas of RSGS’s work. The Geographer Royal for Scotland is an ex officio member of the Board. Other members of the Board are elected by RSGS members.
