The Admission & Advancement (A&A) Review Panels meet eight to ten times annually to review applications and/or nominations for election or elevation to Senior Member (SM) or Life Senior Member (LSM) grade.


Review panels

  • The review panel meetings are held in various locations throughout the world.
  • A panel of reviewers is recruited among Senior Members, Life Senior Members and Fellows in the section where the meeting is to be held.
  • This full-day session is presided over by the Admission and Advancement Chair and/or Vice Chair, as well as a representative of the Member and Geographic Activities staff.
  • In order for an application to be reviewed at a Review Panel meeting, the application, resume, and required reference forms have to be submitted and received at least ten days prior to the meeting date for US meeting locations. For international meeting locations, completed applications or nominations must be received at least 21 days prior to the meeting date.
  • The names of newly elevated Senior Members are posted to the Web approximately two weeks following an A&A Senior Member Review Panel Meeting. Individual subscribers and group mailing lists will receive an e-mail notification that the Senior Member Update is available.
