At the last SpecFicNZ AGM, our new lifetime membership policy was ratified. Fortunately no rats were injured, and some seemed to enjoy the experience.
Lifetime memberships are our way of honouring people who have made a huge contribution to speculative fiction in new Zealand (or internationally). These might be people who have created an exceptional body of work, or who have played a major part in nurturing our little corner of the SpecFic universe.
Anyone can be nominated for lifetime membership and nominees don’t need to be current or past members. Only a small number of lifetime memberships will be awarded every year. The SpecFicNZ committee will assess all nominations and announce any new lifetime memberships awarded at the next AGM.
