Background: This award is documented under Article II (a) (3) of the Constitution. Briefly stated, Honorary Members are nominated upon presentation of a petition, signed by at least 100 active AFS members, and approval is subject to a vote by the membership. Since 1989, however, sometimes the process has been formalized by the appointment of a Special Committee by the AFS President to provide nominating petitions. Upon election to Honorary Membership by a 2/3 majority of the voting members, the individual receives permanent dues-free membership and is awarded a certificate attesting to the honor.
Criteria: Presented to individuals who have achieved outstanding professional accomplishments or have given outstanding service to the Society.
