ASCILITE Life Member Award

An ASCILITE Life Member Award is a prestigious award that recognises the significant service and/or sustained contribution of an ASCILITE member to the Society. Life Member Awards are the highest recognition of achievement made by ASCILITE. This award is made only when an appropriate candidate meets the criteria. This means that the award may not be presented every year.  Life members do not pay membership fees.
