Fellowship Applications Open

College Fellowship

Fellowship with the College is a member recognition level above that of Member and is an acknowledgement of the significant contribution a member has made to the College and/or the profession. Fellowship is bestowed by the Board on suitable members and it is a substantial honour to be elevated to Fellow within the College.

The process to become a Fellow is via a yearly application process, where a member submits their contribution to the College / profession for review by the College’s Awards and Recognition Committee, who then make a recommendation to the Board.
