Proposal of Post-Nominals
« on: March 06, 2020, 02:12:53 PM »
Greetings fellow Scholars,
As the move to the NewWitt is now complete, I propose the Society awards to inducted members Post-Nominals in accordance with their current status within the organization.

Associate - RS
Fellow - FRS
Senior Fellow - SFRS

Thoughts?

Respectfully Submitted,
Gen. Txoteu É. Davinescu, BSc
Senior Fellow

I do not think joining the Royal Society merits post-nominals, given how easy it is to do it.

Actually most do... for example https://www.rsc.org/membership-and-community/join/associate-member/#undefined
Yes, because they are more difficult to join than just writing an essay.

That may be, but in our little country... why can't those that take the time to qualify for and join the nation's most learned society not be entitled to recognition? Maybe add the requirement for membership of at least a year as well.

I think there's something to this as well.  When it comes to it, it makes me wonder if there is a bit of tight-fistedness in regards to recognition.  Not that it should come for nothing, of course.  But I think there is merit in this idea.

I'd like to call for a vote on this. I move to adopt the Post-Noms as proposed.
