Hi James. As you saw in the December 2023 edition of the BAA journal the intention was stated that “We will not create new Honorary Memberships after 2026”. I attended the meeting in London to make a request to the Trustees and the Committee not to scrap Honorary Memberships from 2026 and it is for them to decide and let us know. I proposed that even if we don’t offer free subscriptions for Honorary Members we keep the category and continue to recognise members who have 50 years continuous membership with the title of being Honorary Members, recognition in the BAA journal and some physical award like a certificate or badge. There was a vote regarding continuing to offer free subscriptions to Honorary Members and the majority voted not to continue this process. Hopefully there will be some formal announcement about whether this category of membership will continue or not.
