Anne, tend to think for my part that if he is not YET approved then he cannot have that sticker, that sticker is for those who have merit
But it will not hurt to announce "(xyz) has not yet been approved for N.S.S.A.R., so the sticker indicating he is qualified has been removed."
Odds are that very few have ever noticed he had the sticker.
Oh, dear. I can see from his profile, however, that his biog indicates he IS a member and therefore he merits the sticker and by what reasons this is so.
How so very interesting.
In view of the Biography contents, I think your difficulty is much larger so to speak than a flubbed sticker. What do you plan to do to bring the Biography into accord with the removal of the sticker? You are the one who will have to decide how to reconcile loss of the sticker with the content of the Biography.
