Honorary Life Membership

The Honorary Life Membership award was established by WSMTA in 1953.

The WSMTA Honorary Life Membership may be conferred by the Board of Directors to any member of the Association in good standing for a minimum of twenty (20) years and who has given outstanding and distinguished service to the Association.  National Dues shall be paid by the Association and State dues waived.  State Honorary Life Membership conveys all rights and privileges of Active Membership.

The Honorary Life Membership Committee may make a recommendation once a year to the Executive Board to honor a member who has given outstanding service to WSMTA.  After approval of the recommendation, the honoree is recognized at the WSMTA Conference, their name inscribed on the Honorary Life Membership plaque and a scrapbook featuring Honorary Life Members is displayed at the conference.
