Honorary membership is among the highest distinctions afforded by the Society. Honorary members are persons who have given evidence of distinguished scholarship or rendered distinguished service to pharmacy and have been elected to such membership in accord with the provisions stated in these Bylaws.

Honorary members may be nominated by any chapter or by any member of the Executive Council. Nominations, including qualifications of the nominees, shall be submitted in writing to the National Office and thus to the Executive Council.

To achieve the goal of induction into membership during the Annual Meeting, nominations must be in the National Office three months before the Annual Meeting.  Election to honorary membership requires the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the membership of the Executive Council.

Induction of honorary members shall usually occur during the Annual Meeting.  An appropriate certificate and insignia shall be issued to each honorary member.  Honorary members shall not have the right to vote or hold office.
