Fellow membership is granted by the CAUTHE Executive to people in recognition of their enduring commitment to tourism, hospitality and/or event education and research and CAUTHE.
The Fellowship was formed in August 2008 and marked a significant milestone in the development and maturation of CAUTHE. The inaugural Fellows were formally invested at the CAUTHE 2009 Conference in Fremantle. The role of Tony Nankervis, Swinburne University, in bringing the Fellowship to life was also acknowledged. The Emeritus Fellow status was introduced in 2014 for those Fellows who have retired.
