Life Governorship dates back to the beginning of the Association.
Life Governors have, in many ways, shaped the Association through their generosity and in many cases their role as Councillors.
Every person nominated as a new Life Governor must be proposed and seconded by existing members.
Each Life Governor receives a copy of the Annual Report and is invited to attend and vote at Annual General Meetings.
