    The Institute Bylaws were amended in 2017, by action at the national convention.  Prior to that, a member could attain Emeritus status at 70 years of age or by petitioned exception.  Now, an AIA member in good standing for a minimum of 15 years may apply for Emeritus status.  I gained Emeritus status at 68, with 32 years of continuous membership.
     
    Institute Bylaws -
    2.3 MEMBERS EMERITUS
    2.31 Eligibility.
    2.311 Architect Members. Any Architect member may apply for Emeritus status
    who has been in good standing in the Institute for fifteen successive years
    immediately prior to his or her application, and either (i) has attained the age of
    70 and is retired from the profession of architecture, or (ii) is so incapacitated as
    to be unable to work in the profession.

    Sorry, it looks like my cut-and-paste was incomplete. 
    2.313 Waiver by the Secretary. The Secretary, in exceptional circumstances and
    for adequate cause, may, on an individual basis, waive (a) all or part of the period
    of good standing required for Emeritus status; and/or (b) the age requirement for
    Emeritus status.

    In 2019, Kathryn Vernon-McKeen was the first woman in Connecticut to achieve FAIA Emeritus status. Gina Calabro, AIA Connecticut Executive Director, reminds me that she also was recognized at our awards gala for 45 years as a member of AIA.

    Who knows of other barrier breaking Fellows Emeritus?

    Happy New Year!

    Although 45 years in the AIA is wonderful, I have been a continuous member of the AIA since 1953...67 years in 2020 and still teaching and practicing Architecture very happily
