Emeritus members bring a wealth of knowledge and experience and play a vital role in IFT’s membership.

Emeritus membership is open to any current IFT member who has fully retired from professional life in a remunerative capacity, and has been a member of IFT for at least 20 years. Emeritus members receive similar benefits as Premier members.

A comprehensive membership benefits matrix has been created to provide an easy way to see different member benefits provided within each category.
