Life Member (or Lifetime Member) is a category of membership in the national Libertarian Party (and some state & local parties). The terms can differ by party. The first Lifetime Member was Luke Zell.

National-party membership

By the terms of the national Libertarian Party, this is 1 of of the 10 tiered levels of membership (not counting 'Other'). Lifetime Members receive a lifelong subscription to the LP News & Lifetime Member pin. The due is $1,500 in a 12-month period.[1]

The amount of $1,500 per year began July 1, 2012. Prior to that it was $1000 per year. When the party started charging $1000 for Life Members is not known.

When the Party was first formed, there were two levels of Life Membership: Life and Sustaining Life. Tim Barrus was the first Life Sustaining Member. Luke Zell was the first Life Member. Although not entirely clear what else may be involved, becoming a Life Sustaining Member involved the payment of $250.
