Lifetime Membership Award

The Lifetime Membership Award consists of a paid life membership in Mensa. The award is usually given for either a great but very brief service, for exceptionally long and steady service, or for exceptional service by someone who has already received another award.

On Oct. 4, 1975, Karl F. Ross received the first Lifetime Membership Award for his service as Editor of the Mensa Bulletin.

Nominations for national awards are accepted each January through April. Contact the National Awards Committee for more information.
