Each year, the Council of the Society considers the election of Honorary Members of the Society from amongst distinguished mathematicians who are not normally resident within the United Kingdom. The election of Honorary Members is made by Council, subject to confirmation by the Society at an Ordinary Meeting.
There is no statutory limit on the number of Honorary Members that can be elected in any year, and there is no constraint on the time or frequency of such elections.
The London Mathematical Society has elected Professor Donald Dawson, at Carleton University, USA and Professor Cheryl Praeger, at the University of Western Australia, to Honorary Membership of the Society.
