The Award of Life Membership is the highest honour which can bestowed upon an Ordinary Member of the SAA.
The National Executive or a Branch may recommend an Ordinary Member who has given long, continued and outstanding service to the Association, to be awarded a Life Membership.
The Association documentation was either not kept or has been lost prior to 1982. There may be others that we not aware of prior to the 1950s,
