Fellow members are those members of the Academy who:
(i) hold student office positions;
(ii) vote in student elections; and
(iii) enjoy all rights and privileges of membership in the Academy; provided, however, that
student members may not hold general office positions, or vote except as set forth above. Student members evolve to Fellow member status upon graduation from an approved program for the training of anesthesiologist assistants and retain the status of a Fellow member without additional application or payment of dues until December 31 in the year of the students' graduation, or the student fails to become licensed, certified or otherwise sanctioned to practice as a CAA.
