Honorary Membership Eligibility and Application
Honorary Membership is an individual membership type available to those who have contributed significantly to the programs and objectives of NASPO. To be considered for Honorary membership individuals must meet the following requirements:
- An applicant for Honorary Membership must have been an active member of NASPO, through either State Membership or Associate Membership, but no longer be employed in state government;
- Must at the time of consideration continue to show a professional interest in state government procurement and NASPO; and
- Meet other eligibility requirements, standards, and application procedures as determined by the Board of Directors.
Upon recommendation of the Board of Directors, Honorary Membership may be conferred for a term of five years by majority vote of the Primary Members. Honorary Members are not eligible to vote or hold office but receive such limited membership benefits as may be determined by the Board of Directors. At the conclusion of the five-year period, an Honorary Member may either apply for Life Membership, request to extend the current membership for two years (with approval by the Board) or allow the membership to expire. Honorary Membership may only be extended for one two-year period, after which the member must either apply for Life Member status or allow the membership to expire. Expired Honorary Members have no membership status in NASPO.
NASPO recognizes the value honorary member’s experience and service brings to the world of state procurement and how it contributes to the success of public procurement leaders in their states.
