Emeritus Membership

Past Presidents of CESSE, and CEO Members who have been a member of the organization for at least 10 years and who have retired from all full-time professional activity, are the two categories of CESSE CEO Membership qualifying for Emeritus status.
A Past President of CESSE automatically becomes an Emeritus Member of the organization when he or she ceases to be the chief executive of a CESSE member society by contacting Sara Dethloff to inform CESSE of their change in status.
Additionally, CESSE CEO Members who have been a member of the organization for at least 10 years, and who have retired from all full-time professional activity are eligible for CESSE Emeritus Membership.  Retirees who meet this criteria may petition the Board for Emeritus status by contacting Sara Dethloff.  Emeritus membership applications will be considered at the monthly meeting of the CESSE Board of Directors, and the applicant will be informed of their status pending Board consideration.
Retiring CESSE CEO Members who have been members of the organization for less than 10 years are encouraged to contact Sara Dethloff to change their status to Retired Member.
