According to the Constitution of the RLIF there are four categories of Membership, Full, Associate, Affiliate and Life Members. In order to guide the development of the organisation it will be useful to have agreed criteria to use as a reference point in making future decisions about membership. These notes are to be used to guide and assist decision making and the RLIF Board should retain the right to vary the criteria within reason.
