Elevation to Fellowship
Potential Fellows must be recommended by a sponsor—a current Fellow of The College— who nominates the candidate and submits the following documentation:
- Letter of recommendation written by the sponsor
- Letters of recommendation from three other Members of The College, at least one of whom is a Fellow (Please contact The College if you need a Membership Directory to help you identify potential sponsors)
Guidelines for recommendation letters
- Completed Fellowship Sponsorship Form (to be filled out by main sponsor)
- Completed Fellowship Application (to be filled out by candidate)
All documentation should be collected by the main sponsor. The main sponsor should then forward the completed package to The College.
The deadline for submitting Fellowship materials is June 1.
June 1: Fellowship Application Deadline
Mid-October: Fellowship Applications reviewed and approved by the Board and Membership Committee
Early November: Applicants receive notification
Next Annual Meeting: Fellows who were approved in October should attend the next Annual Meeting
