Life Membership Policy:

Life Members are those active members who have maintained continuous membership for a minimum of 10 years and shall be limited to one for each 100 active members. Their participation as a member shall reflect exceptional service and dedication to the TSRT and the profession. They shall be selected by three‐fourths (3/4) vote of the entire membership of the Board of Directors. They shall have all rights, privileges and obligations of active members.


Life Membership is an honor recognizing members for their special contributions to TSRT and the profession. This membership status is confined to active members who qualify within the eligibility guidelines. It should not be confused with retired or inactive status. Life Members are exempt from all annual dues payments. Life Members retain all rights and privileges of active members. Life Membership recognizes the valuable contributions of individuals to the past, current and future of TSRT and the profession. In particular, Life Membership recognizes a wide range of contributions – more than simply being a long‐term TSRT member. Life Membership should be awarded for sustained superior performance in support of the TSRT mission, vision, and the profession.



Life Membership may be considered for a member who:

 Is in good standing (dues fully paid through the current year).

 Has been an active member for a minimum of 10 years.

 Has made contributions to TSRT and the profession that reflect exceptional service and dedication.

 Is an advocate for TSRT’s mission and strategic initiatives.


Nominations for Life Membership shall be made by a TSRT member in the form of a completed Life Membership Nomination Packet.
