Fellowship Committee

The Fellowship Committee works closely with all College bodies, including the Divisions, Faculties and Chapters, to increase the value and relevance of membership to Fellows and trainees. The Committee oversees:

  • the development of member services
  • communication with members, including engagement surveys
  • annual College Congress, College Ceremony and other celebrations and special events
  • the framework of awards and recognition that express appreciation for the pro bono work of members

The Committee also makes recommendations to the Board in relation to the awarding of Honorary Fellowships, other than recommendations made by Divisions, Faculties or Chapters, and can recommend to the Board names of non-Fellows who should be considered to receive a College award.
