Honorary Member (HonHGI)
An Honorary membership of the HGI is bestowed on individuals who may or may not be Registered Members of the HGI but who have in some way made a great contribution to the development of the aims and interests of the Institute. They may have held Graduate membership in the past but are no longer practising or they may have no therapy qualifications at all but have been actively involved in the promotion, development or strategic leadership of the Institute.
Honorary members of the Institute are not permitted to practice unless they also hold Registered membership. No other benefits, entitlements or payments are provided in respect of Honorary Membership. The appointment of Honorary Members will be made by the HGI Board in consultation with the Professional Standards and Registration Committee.
