In the June 2019 AIS Council Meeting, the AIS VP Membership Ryan Wright (along with incoming AIS VP Membership Helle Zinner Henriksen) proposed and AIS Council approved the formation of a two tiered Distinguished Member Designation to recognize AIS Members who have made a significant impact on AIS. AIS Members can self-nominate or be nominated for the new member designation. After nomination, the VP of Membership and Chapters will make the final selections based on information provided. This new program is a part of the AIS 25 for 25 Campaign. To learn more about the 25 for 25 Campaign, click here

Distinguished Member

The first tier of designation is Distinguished Member. These members must have a minimum of five years of continuous AIS membership, play a significant role in AIS or related AIS activity, and at least one publication in an AIS or AIS affiliated journal.

Distinguished Member - Cum Laude

The second tier is Distinguished Member – Cum Laude. To receive this designation, the recipient must have been a continuous AIS member for at least 10 years, play a leadership role in AIS or related AIS activity, and have been published in at least four publications in AIS or AIS affiliated journal.

Both levels of Distinguished Members will receive recognition on the AIS website, designation on an AIS membership card, a printable certificate for tenure packets, and AIS memorabilia to recognize the designation.
