To be eligible for Life Membership a person must have shown outstanding service to RITANZ or to the insolvency profession and meet the general criteria for membership to RITANZ.
To assist members in considering nominations for this role, the Board has considered factors which it will take into account when determining whether a nominee has shown outstanding service to RITANZ or to the insolvency profession.
Those factors include:
whether a nominee is a past or present member of RITANZ;
where a nominee is a non-member, any exceptional circumstances which evidence the nominee’s outstanding contribution to the industry;
the level of seniority or experience the nominee has achieved in their career; and
their significant contribution to RITANZ or the industry in a senior role.
Each nomination for Life Membership needs to be proposed by a minimum of two RITANZ members and provided to the Board in writing by the 30th March 2021. The nomination should explain why the nominee should be a Life Member, taking into account the factors above and any other information the nominators consider relevant.
Once all nominations are received, the Membership Sub Committee will review the candidates taking into account the above factors and RITANZ’s general admission criteria and will then provide a recommendation to the full board of RITANZ . The RITANZ board will then invite the chosen candidate/s to accept the admission and the invitation to become a RITANZ Life Member.
