INCITS has created a new membership category called Emeritus. It is
documented in the RD-2 at
<">> I've
pasted this section below.
John Emeritus Members 
The Emeritus membership category rewards individuals for their extensive
contribution to standards activities and allows INCITS to call on their vast
history and talent for continuity following their retirement. 
Nominees for appointment as an Emeritus Member shall have served on an INCITS
TC, TG or SG for a minimum of 10 years, and shall have made significant
contributions to standards efforts. They must no longer be a representative
of a dues-paying member of the committee.
A nomination for appointment as an Emeritus Member shall be made either by
motion of the sponsoring subgroup or the Secretariat. The recommendation may
be proposed once the individual meets the above requirements and should
identify a short history of the contribution made by the individual. Such
recommendations shall be forwarded to the INCITS Executive Board, which shall
consider approval in a regularly meeting.
All Emeritus memberships are non-voting, non-dues-paying membership
established in relation to a specific TC, TG or SG. Emeritus Members may
attend meetings, speak, and submit contributions as an individual subject
matter expert. Emeritus members may receive all electronically available
subgroup documents, including meeting notices, draft agendas and minutes;
other documents are not required to be distributed to Emeritus Members.
Emeritus Members shall not have the right to hold any office in INCITS or to
participate in Executive Board activities (including its subsidiary boards).
Individuals appointed as Emeritus Member shall continue to hold their
Emeritus membership as long as all requirements noted above are met, and as
approved by the Executive Board; an Emeritus Member may resign their
positions as described in Section 4.2.5, Resignation of Membership. 
Emeritus Members shall not count in any calculations for quorum or subgroup
voting. A subgroup's membership roster shall identify Emeritus Members. Each
subgroup Chairman shall list all Emeritus Members as a part of the subgroup's
Annual Report.
