Applying

Membership in an SIA Honor Society is not automatic. You must apply for membership once you meet the eligibility requirements. To apply, you must complete the application at the following link by the 19th of the month for that month’s announcement. Click here to go to the current form.

The 32 Club

The purpose of the 32 Club is to recognize those members who have completed the available curriculum in the SIA Technical Specialties College. Within the Technical Specialties College, there are a substantial number of courses across a wide set of specialties. Most students take a few courses in the field(s) that they are interested in role playing or focus on the courses that will get them their Space Warfare Pin. However, a few students fully complete the entire curriculum.

There are currently 99 SIA TSC courses (A, C, and D, not counting W) available. The successful completion of the numerous specialty courses across that wide a range of fields is an achievement that should be celebrated and recognized. The 32 Club is named in recognition of the number of courses available at the time of its creation. This will not change as courses get added into TSC but remain as a mark of that point in time. The 32 Club is open to all who have completed the full curriculum in SIA TSC (at the time they apply) regardless of branch and has two levels:

Silver
Requirements: Complete all A, C, and D courses in the SIA TSC.
Gold
Requirements: Complete all SIA TSC D courses plus at least one W project in each of the eight SIA TSC departments.

Administration will be at the level of the SIA TSC Commandant’s office, with applications being received and processed by the SIA TSC Chief of Staff and membership awarded by the TSC Commandant. Applicants can fill out a Google form here, or email the TSC CoS (tsccos@sia.trmn.org) with a request to be recognized as eligible for inclusion in the 32 Club. The TSC CoS or TSC Commandant will review the applicant's record to determine eligibility and level.

New members will be inducted once per month, as soon after month end as practical; this will be by an announcement on the forum. This announcement will be by the SIA TSC Commandant or the TSC CoS for the Commandant. Members will be emailed a certificate to certify their membership and level. When courses are added to the TSC, existing members will automatically be grandfathered through at their current level. However, if they wish to apply for a higher level, they must have completed the full requirements (at the time of their upgrade application) for that level.

All members may purchase and wear the 32 Club pin (currently being developed) as an emblem of their achievement. However, this is not an approved uniform item so it may not be worn on a TRMN uniform.
