PostSubject: Honorary Members   Thu Jul 21, 2011 3:52 pm

Concerning Honorary Membership on this Forum

Some of you may have noticed that currently there are 3 Usergroups on this forum: 1. Administrator, 2. Moderators, 3. Honorary Members. This announcement is to address the definition and purpose of the "Honorary Members" usergroup and to encourage the growth of Honorary Membership on this forum.

"Honorary Members" on this forum will be listed under the "Honorary Members" Usergroup under "Usergroups" and will have their screen names highlighted in green. "Honorary Members" are non-USF forum members that are allowed to participate on the Aquarist Club at USF Forum, as well as attend club meetings and socials. However, "Honorary Members" are NOT members of the Aquarist Club at USF. (This has to be clearly stated and maintained in order for our organization to be eligible for USF Student Government A&S Funding).

With this said, Honorary Membership is welcomed and encouraged. If any members of this forum would like to recommend a candidate (not currently on this forum) for Honorary Membership, please send me a PM. Any forum members recommending a non-USF candidate for Honorary Membership on this forum MUST notify me first so that I can mark the new member as an "Honorary Member".

Thank you,
Sam G.
(President of the Aquarist Club at USF and Administrator of this Forum)

An important edit has been made to the above post. Originally "Honorary Members" were limited solely to participation on this forum. This has been changed. "Honorary Members" are now allowed to attend our club meetings and socials as well.

Initially, "Honorary Members" were going to be restricted from attending club meetings and socials so that our organization would be eligible to receive Student Government A&S Funding. I have read over the Student Organization Handbook for 2011-2012 and the Student Government A&S Funding requirements as outlined on their website. According to these sources, allowing "Honorary Members" to attend our meetings and socials does not disqualify us for SG A&S Funding.

Adding to the above...

The restrictions placed upon "Honorary Members" include:

1. "Honorary Members" will not be included in our Point System for participation.

2. "Honorary Members" may be eligible to attend club trips (e.g. club trips to local aquariums, etc.); however, they will have to pay their own admission/event price (the club will not cover them).

"Honorary Members" are excluded from these membership benefits in order for us to be eligible for SG A&S Funding.
