Emeritus Professor Jim Orford (pictured right) was elected as an Honorary Fellow of the British Psychological Society at the Society's annual general meeting in London on 24th June. The Honorary Fellowship is awarded 'for the contribution made to the discipline of psychology.' It is the Society's highest award and provides free membership for life. There are in fact not many BPS Honorary Fellows – just over thirty since 1970 – and this award puts Jim in the company of well-known names such as Noam Chomsky, Sir Michael Rutter and Cary Cooper to name but three.
