Emeritus Membership

Any member in good standing who is at least 65 years old, is fully retired from professional employment, and who has been an active member of CESSE for a minimum of 15 consecutive years, may obtain Emeritus Member status upon application certifying that these requirements are met. Emeritus Members are not eligible to vote or to serve as a member of the Board of Directors.

Those who meet this criterion may apply for Emeritus Membership by submitting an application or by contacting Sara Dethloff at CESSE headquarters.
