In 2018 the APEN Board decided to introduce a Life Membership award which will run parallel to the APEN Awards for Excellence in Extension which are awarded at our bi-annual conference. The next conference will be held in September 2019. As APEN celebrates 25 years since its inception in 1993 in 2018, the Board decided it would like to award the first Life Membership at the 2018 AGM.
The successful nominee is announced and a plaque and badge are presented at the next APEN conference. This year it will be at an event at which the AGM is being held - details TBC.
• An Honour Board on the APEN website which lists life members and has their photos and a comment about their contributions.
• At conference dinners, a table is designated for current board members, life members and possibly past-presidents, to honour them and recognise their efforts.
• APEN membership is free for the life member going forward.
