FIA’s new Fellows and Emeritus Members
FIA promotes excellence in fundraising by recognising the achievements of our members in their drive to be outstanding fundraising professionals. All FIA members are signatory to the FIA Code and undertake to uphold the highest ethical and professional standards of fundraising.
Election as a Fellow is a professional honour that is awarded following intense peer review and careful consideration by the FIA Board of Directors. Similarly, election as an Emeritus of FIA is a professional honour that is awarded by the Board. The honour is conferred on members who retire from employment after distinguished and sustained service to FIA and the fundraising profession, or retire for a significant appointment in the public or private sectors.
