Fellow is the highest grade of membership in SFPE. To be eligible to become a fellow, individuals must have been a professional member (previously known as "Member" grade) for at least 10 years. Election as Fellow shall be in recognition of service to the Society and significant accomplishment and stature in fire protection engineering. Elevation to the grade of fellow requires nomination by at least five fellows or professional members, review by the SFPE Honors Committee, and action by the SFPE Board of Directors.
SFPE Honorary Members are a distinguished group of individuals who either have rendered exceptional service to the Society or have made substantial and outstanding contributions to fire protection engineering, or are generally acknowledged as eminent in fire protection engineering or a related activity. The grade of Honorary Member may be conferred regardless of age or prior membership status in the Society. This grade of membership carries with it all of the privileges of the grade of Fellow in the Society. Nominations follow the same procedure as fellow and use the same forms noting the different qualification criteria.
