Thanks to Jack and the Aires for raising the question. RARB as an organization is always interested in streamlining its processes, and I as coordinator am personally committed to the Board's continual improvement. The answer is partly as Rebecca graciously described it, but more generally a matter of the Board being all-volunteer, by definition dependent on the time and energy its volunteers are able to donate moment by moment.
Assignments of reviewers are made regularly, such that anyone waiting should receive theirs very soon.
