  • A LIFETIME MEMBER. A breeder may become a lifetime member with payment of a once off lifetime membership society fee.
  • HONORARY LIFETIME MEMBER. For special services rendered in the interests of the breed, the annual general meeting may elect a person as a lifetime member. This member shall enjoy all the rights and privileges of membership, including the right to vote at any meeting of the society and shall also be eligible to join the board.
  • SPECIAL HONORARY MEMBER. Persons who are not necessarily concerned with the breeding of Nooitgedachters may be elected as a special honorary member on such terms as the board be determined. Special honorary members shall have no right to vote at meetings of the society nor be eligible for election to the board.
