3. Have demonstrated outstanding service to ANPA in one or more of the following areas of the organization:

5. Have an overall professional reputation and standing, as determined by the Membership Committee, which qualifies a physician or psychologist for this highest category of ANPA membership.

A Fellow may sponsor only two candidates for promotion each year. Their letters need to address the  issues of contributions of the member to the field of neuropsychiatry and how the member has contributed to the goals of ANPA.
