The ARRT is governed by a nine member Board of Trustees that establish policy for the organization. The Board employs an executive director to manage the operations of the organization and it's in-house employees conducting ARRT business. Five of the Trustees are appointed by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and four by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Trustees are appointed for four year terms and may serve a maximum of two terms. Wilson was reappointed to a second term last year. She begins her term as board president of ARRT in July 2007.
