This tier encompasses private businesses within the space industry.

This tier encompasses educational and research institutions.

Individuals who are established professionals involved in any aspect of the space arena. Eligibility for membership is not prescribed by the candidate’s professional discipline, but rather by the contribution of that person to the advancement of the space arena in South Africa. Hence, eminent authors, journalists and artists who have made a contribution to the public awareness of space science and technology could also be eligible for election to the Membership.

Retired Members:
Individuals qualifying as members whose official status is retired.

Young Space professionals:
Graduates (under the age of 30 years) employed within the South African space arena. Young Space Professionals are full Members. The only distinction is that they would pay a lower membership fee. In the year that they turn 30, they would pay the full membership fee.

Student Members:
Individuals currently registered at a South African Tertiary Educational Institution.

Honorary Members:
Individuals who have made long-term contribution to the Association. Honorary Members do not pay membership fees.

Individuals who have made a highly significant, professional contribution to the development of the space arena in South Africa. The number of Fellows admitted in a given year would be fixed to (say) no more than five. This would be regarded as a rare honour. Fellows would be inducted at an annual banquet.
