Other activity that meets expectations for Fellows but is not covered by other criteria.
There is no constraint on the type of activity that might be considered to fulfil this criterion but this could include:

- Presence on National or international legislative, executive or advisory bodies.

This section may be useful for honorary fellow candidates who are not medical professionals. Individuals working in the commercial or voluntary sectors can be considered to be making a significant contribution if they demonstrate they have been advocates, and have enhanced the public understanding or increased the impact of arrhythmia management.
Contributions to the development of the field by people funding research in government, research councils and charitable bodies can be seen as significant if they have, as individuals, taken the lead in supporting and encouraging innovative work by the creation of a strong infrastructure, by promoting the benefits of arrhythmia management to wider audiences, or helped to embed findings from arrhythmia research into policy and practice.
Communicators, in the media and elsewhere, can be seen to have made a significant contribution if they make regular use of scientific knowledge, acknowledge and promote the findings of research, and enhance the public understanding or impact of arrhythmia management.
