Life Members

Life Members

Life Membership is a special and rare category of GTAV membership awarded to those who have made a significant and outstanding contribution to the GTAV over an extended period of time or an exceptional contribution over a shorter period of time.

In accordance with Statement of Purposes, life membership should be awarded to GTAV members who have rendered distinguished service to the Association.

The individual will have fostered geographic education through long-term service and commitment to the aims and objectives of the GTAV. They will be acknowledged by his/her colleagues as outstanding by virtue of contributions to the GTAV rather than by their professional positions held.

We currently have 13 Life Members.
