Being awarded a Life Membership is the highest honour the club can bestow on one of its members. It's an uncommon award, making it even more highly prized by the recipient, and a member will normally only be nominated after a considerable period in harness. Unlike many clubs across a wide variety of sports and pastimes, Ponsonby does not consider a Life Membership a signal that it's time to retire or a vote of thanks to someone who is stepping back. It has been said at the AGM by Auckland Union officials that 'Ponsonby gets greater value from its Life Members than any other club', something of which the club is justifiably proud.
