Life Membership of AQUA
The AQUA Constitution (in section “10 Membership categories”) describes that:
A Life member is a person who has made an outstanding contribution to Quaternary Studies over a substantial period of years or who has provided exceptional long-term service and support to the Association. A Life membership is proposed by the Committee and must be approved by a general meeting. Life members are not expected to pay fees and may choose to receive any publications produced by the Association.
(Please also note that a previous version of our Constitution had a statement that – A Life membership cannot be proposed if the number of Life members exceeds 5 percent of the total number of members. This statement was removed after at a Special General Meeting held on 31/5/2107)
Current life members include: Jim Bowler, Eric Colhoun, John Chappell, Peter Kershaw, John Magee (2014) and Matt McGlone (2016).
The AQUA executive normally makes a call for the nomination of Life Members in the lead up to a Biennial Conference and they are announced soon after.
