Welcome to the New AOS Fellows, Honorary Fellows, & Elective Members

At our annual meeting each year, we officially welcome the new classes of Fellows, Honorary Fellows, and Elective Members of AOS. Individuals are elected to these special membership classes in recognition of their contributions to ornithology and to AOS. Congratulations to the newest members of these honored groups, who were voted in at our 2019 annual meeting in Anchorage last month!

(Note: AOS bylaws were actually amended at the 2019 meeting to remove the geographic limitations on special membership classes, but since this year’s Fellows, Honorary Fellows, and Elective Members were voted in under the old bylaws, we’ve reproduced the former requirements below. More on this soon!)

New Fellows

Fellows are nominated based on their exceptional and sustained contributions to ornithology and/or service to AOS. At the time of their election, Fellows must be Honorary Fellows or Elective Members in good standing who are residents or citizens of a political subdivision of the Western Hemisphere.
