Official Thespian and Junior Thespian induction provides a lifetime membership. The troupe director can, however, suspend or withdraw a student's status as a member in good standing of the local troupe. This policy is addressed in the Junior Thespian Troupe Handbook. It is acceptable for troupes to set their own participation, behavior, attendance, minimum GPA, or other requirements to maintain good standing. Local troupe standing does not affect a student's membership status or benefits that come directly from the International Thespian Society, for example, their membership card, induction pin, membership certificate, or listing on the international membership rolls.
