Honorary Membership

Honorary membership was established in 1919 for outstanding contributions to The Electrochemical Society. Qualified candidates will have contributed substantial service to ECS in some appointed or elected capacity to be considered for Honorary Membership.

Nomination Deadline: None, no call for nominations
Presented: At the corresponding Society meeting

Recipient qualifications

Included as qualifications for consideration shall be: participation in Society, Divisional, and Section activities, such as organization and arrangement of Society and/or local meetings. Special weight shall be given to participation in Society activities, since the Divisions, and Sections have other means of recognizing distinguished service at these levels. Consideration shall be given to activities and contributions that foster the aims and image of The Electrochemical Society. The recipient does not need to be a member of The Electrochemical Society.

Award

The award consists of a framed scroll bearing the recipient’s name and signed by the President and Secretary of the Society. Honorary Members pay no annual dues and have all the rights and privileges of Members.
