Lifetime Members

ASMC Lifetime members are recognized in the Armed Forces Comptroller once a year for their long-time support of the society. There are two categories of Lifetime membership with ASMC:

  • Lifetime Members (Non-dues paying – 30 years)
    • Any individual member achieving 30 (thirty) consecutive years of membership in ASMC qualifies for Lifetime (Non-dues Paying) membership, without any other stipulations. Non-dues paying Lifetime members do not receive a print copy of the AFC journal but can access the online version at any time. This revised policy was approved by the ASMC National Executive Committee (ASMC Board) in December 2016. Non-dues paying lifetime members also include members who are past National Presidents and who, to remain in good standing, have paid the appropriate consecutive dues and fees.
  • Lifetime Members (Dues paying – 20 years)
    • Any individual member achieving 20 (twenty) consecutive years of membership in ASMC qualifies for Lifetime (Dues paying) membership.
