Fellowship shall be treated as the elite category of membership of the Association and shall be the highest honour the Association can bestow.
Life Members, Honorary Members and Honorary Life Members may be eligible for nomination for a Fellowship after completion of 25 years of outstanding service to the Association and/or the School (or such lesser period as the Committee may decide in special circumstances).
Length of service alone shall be insufficient to merit a Fellowship. Outstanding service must be the primary foundation upon which an award is granted.
What constitutes outstanding service shall be determined by the CGA Committee from time to time, using the following guidelines (and such other measures as the CGA Committee, for the time being, may consider relevant and important):
- The nominee will be judged relative to those of similar status.
- The nominee’s contribution is expected to be outstanding relative to his or her peers.
- The nominee’s contribution to the Association or the School must be of a nature that has resulted in a positive change to the life of the Association or the School, in terms of:
– Upholding and pursuing the Association’s objectives; and
– Upholding and pursuing the School’s vision statement in a way that directly or indirectly benefits the Association.
Nominations for Fellowship are to be evaluated by the Membership and Awards Committee convened in accordance with Rule 9.4 of the CGA Constitution.
Fellowship shall only be conferred on the unanimous vote of the Committee based on the recommendation of the Membership and Awards Committee.
Candidates for Fellowship must be nominated and seconded by a Grammarian or member of an affiliated club. The nomination form is to include a statement pertaining to the candidate’s outstanding service to the Association and/or the School.
