Upon retirement, any Member of IDARS may apply for Emeritus status. The member requesting such status should address a letter to the Executive Officer, indicating the reason for the request. On occasion, the President, Executive Officer and Membership Committee members may choose to nominate individuals for Emeritus membership. The Executive Officer will forward the letter with his/her recommendation to the Membership Committee. If the Chair of the Membership Committee approves the request, no further action is necessary. Otherwise, the request will be submitted to the full Membership Committee. If Emeritus status is approved, the member will maintain the same privileges and duties as regular members. Emeritus status will be reviewed by the Membership committee every five years. Members with Emeritus or Honorary status will not be assessed annual dues.
