Honoured members

AAG formally recognises members who have given outstanding service to AAG.


AAG's highest honour is that of Life Membership. Life Members have a long and distinguished record of service as a member and contribution to the gerontology community at a national level. Awards are made as and when suitable candidates are nominated.

Distinguished Member Awards were introduced in 1999. Nomination is made by AAG's State and Territory Divisions.

The AAG Fellowship Award was established in 1999 to recognise high professional standing of members in any field of gerontology.
