ORUBA's membership is made up of the business officers for UC San Diego's research units.


ORUBA is governed by a Chair and Vice-Chair elected from the general membership. The ORUBA Chair organizes and presides over all meetings, while the Vice-Chair serves in the absence of the Chair. The Chair and Vice-Chair each serve one-year terms (not to exceed two years). At the end of the Chair's one-year term, the Vice-Chair assumes the outgoing Chair's position. A new Vice Chair is elected each year by the ORUBA members.
