RWTO/OERO is divided into 13 Areas across the Province, each with an Area Director who represents her Area on the Board of Directors. Within these Areas are 46 Branches, each with its own Executive, programs and activities. The Provincial Board of Directors is comprised of an Executive and the Area Directors.
