Dear Members:


I am pleased to announce that the new RRS website is up and running! While the website address is the same as before, the look and functionality are all new. I encourage you to visit the website if you have not already done so and take advantage of the numerous features available.

Since many of you have radres saved on your favorites or bookmarked, you may land on the old webpage. If so, you will find a redirect to the new site there. Please clear your cache or cookies in your web browser and then enter the new website address and re-save it in your favorites.


Your log-in information is the same as it was on the former website. Remember to include any leading zeros you may have in your username as you will need to enter them. If you want to reset your password, you can do so online in the manage profile section.


If you have any questions, please direct them to Scott Starr at


Some of additional items of interest include:

  • Managing your member profile to ensure all of your contact information is up to date
  • Checking your account history to review your membership status and renewal options
  • Searching the latest career postings or submitting one of your own
  • Setting-up network connections

Please explore these items and many more!
