Meet our Life Members

Life membership is a special honour awarded to PDAC members who maintain 25 years of continuous membership and who have reached 65 years of age. Life members do not pay annual membership fees.

Our 500 Life Members are some of the most dedicated and longstanding contributors to PDAC. With a range of 25-78 years of membership, the breadth of their experience has shaped our industry and we are excited to share some of their stories with you. Our Life Member Gallery spotlights some heartwarming and hilarious adventures from a time long ago.

If you are a Life Member and would like to have an entry in the gallery, contact Matt Burdett. Scroll down to view the full list of PDAC Life Members.
