Fellows are also elected at the Annual General Meeting. Individuals may be nominated as
Fellows, or as Honorary Fellows.
The Fellows Committee solicits nominations from Fellows
and other sources. Fellows are expected to contribute to the activities of the Society or
to the objectives and programs of the Society. Fellows are elected for life but must maintain
a membership in the Society.
Individuals may be elected Honorary Fellows to recognize their service to the Society.
They are not required to be members of the Society and they have no vote at the Annual General
“I grew up hearing all about the Sydney steel mill, the tar ponds and the controversy over the cleanup. The more I read and learned, the more my curiosity was piqued. It seemed a natural area for me to take my studies.”
