Fellow of the RBMA

The RBMA Fellowship program was approved in 2009 to recognize the significant contributions made by RBMA members to the Association and the profession. Fellow of the RBMA (FRBMA) is a prestigious accomplishment to be held in high regard by RBMA and your peers. Accordingly, RBMA has established a high bar for its Fellows. Each Fellow candidate will be judged according to his/her educational accomplishments (achieved and ongoing development), years of RBMA membership, professional service to RBMA, and contributions to the profession.

The next class of Fellows will be inducted at RBMA PaRADigm 2018.
If you are interested in applying for Fellowship in 2018, we encourage you to review the qualifications and required application materials to begin the preparation process now.  Applications will open in early 2018.
