Any Member of the Society can nominate another Member for a Fellowship providing the nominee meets the eligibility criteria above.
The nominator’s proposal should be supported by two further Members and either the nominator or at least one of the supporters must be a Fellow.
Anyone nominating a Member for a Fellowship is asked to complete the nomination form and provide a supporting statement.
The two supporters are also asked to provide supporting statements.
A CV is required by the Panel.
Please note that if you are nominating a family member for Fellowship, although a supporting statement is welcome, it is advisable not to act as the primary nominator.
Group nominations will not be accepted by the Panel. Each person should be nominated on a separate nomination form, as the Panel needs to assess the unique contribution of each individual in assessing a person for Fellowship .
Please complete all parts of the form, answer all of the questions and provide supporting statements and a CV as a decision can normally only be made on the evidence submitted as part of the nomination process.
If the procedure is not followed and an incomplete nomination is submitted the Panel may not be able to accept it.
