Who is eligible?
1. The nominee must be, or have been, an active participant in any segment of the recreation vehicle or manufactured housing industries for a minimum of 25 years. The Hall Board does have the power to choose a nominee who has earned selection while falling short of the 25-year threshold, but will exercise that power only in special circumstances.
2. The nomination form must be filled out in its entirety and must be accompanied by three supporting letters (no more, no less) that meet the Hall's guidelines for these letters. Incomplete nominations cannot be considered. If the nominee is not selected within five years, he or she remains eligible only if the nomination is resubmitted and refreshed with additional information.
What is the selection committee looking for?
Consideration will be given to the nominee's overall contributions to the good of the industry, to include both his or her positions, accomplishments and innovations on the job as well as volunteer work both inside and outside the industry, with special emphasis on volunteer work done on behalf of state and national associations and owner groups, the Hall of Fame itself and other industry-related organizations and causes. Favorable responses to these two basic questions are good starting points for Hall consideration: 1) Is the nominee a respected, accomplished, honorable person who has done right by his business partners?, and 2) Has the nominee contributed to the good of the industry beyond doing his job well?
How does the process work?
Anyone can nominate anyone. If a completed nomination form and three properly-prepared seconding letters are received by October 31 of any year, the nominee will be in the pool of candidates considered for the following year's class and for five years beyond that. The Hall's selection committee will announce its selections in January and those chosen will be inducted at the Hall's annual dinner in August. The Hall's bylaws allow for up to 10 inductees per year.
