The distinction of Honorary Life Member is reserved for someone who is widely regarded as having made an outstanding contribution to the communications sector.
It is bestowed on individuals whose lifetime contributions to excellence in communication set a supreme example for PRII members and the profession.
The recipient will either have demonstrated an exceptional level of communications proficiency in any sphere of activity in Irish life or will be an Irish citizen working at an influential level in an international communications capacity.
The designation of Honorary Life Membership is bestowed very rarely in recognition of the truly outstanding nature of the recipient’s inspiring contribution to communications.
Recipients need not be members of any other classes of membership of the PRII.
Honorary Life Membership is as the title suggests - for life. There is no annual subscription for Honorary Life Members.
Deserving candidates for Honorary Life Membership will be nominated by the PRII President for consideration by the National Council. Suggestions from members for those that should be considered are welcome and will be kept in confidence. The awarding of this honour requires the unanimous approval of the National Council.
Recipients of the Honorary Life Membership shall receive the President’s Medal at a ceremony to mark the occasion.
