The conferring of Life Membership or Life Associate Membership on a member is the highest distinction the Association can award to individuals for meritorious performance, leadership and individual actions that benefit the Association.
There are also specific criteria to be met regarding the length of service, attendance at meetings, holding executive positions at branch level, and on the Board. Nominees must also volunteer on community desks, facilitate training workshops, and contribute to Association projects and recruitment drives.
There are limitations on the number of awards that can occur.
The appointment of Life Memberships is at the discretion of the Board following exhaustive enquiries.
The Association extends to Life Membership Awardees its profound appreciation for their diligence and efforts on behalf of the Association.
