Members who have made outstanding contributions, long term commitment and high-level service to the
DMDG shall be eligible for DMDG Fellow status. Fellows belong
to a distinguished category of membership who have the privilege of membership without site-based representation. Fellows also benefit from having a funded contribution towards attendance (including complimentary registration) at the annual Open Meetings.
Nominations for DMDG Fellow status may be made at anytime by
clicking here and will be considered at least annually by an augmented Committee. Any member of the
DMDG may submit a nomination, with an accompanying letter providing justification. Newly elected fellows will be announced at the Open Meeting.
Note that Fellowships will be awarded as deserving candidates arise and not according to a defined timetable. To ensure the distinctive level of this membership is maintained the number of Fellows will be monitored appropriately.
It is anticipated that a Fellow would have contributed in a number of areas
and example contributions to the DMDG may include, but are not
limited to, the following:
- Long service to training courses or education of members
- Organisation of, or regular contribution to meetings & events
- Promotion of the DMDG activities and ethos
- Outstanding contribution to DMDG related science over a career
