Even though six months remain until the deadline, Darryl Searer, president of the RV/MH Heritage Foundation wanted to remind MHProNews, and industry professionals, that if they are considering nominating someone, now’s a good time to begin working on it.
“Even though we are intensely planning for the induction dinner celebration for the Class of 2017 on August 7, 2017, it’s really not too early to start the process of nominating a deserving individual to the Hall of Fame for the Class of 2018,” said Searer.
“It’s a lengthy process that should not wait until the last minute, so I urge those who are considering a nominee to download the guidelines and forms so their nominee can be considered for the Class of 2018.”
Nomination guidelines state that anyone can nominate a person to the Hall of Fame that meets the eligibility requirements. The only people who may not be considered are those who currently serve on the Hall’s Selection Committee.
In order to be eligible, nominees must be, or have been, an active participant in any segment of the recreation vehicle, campground, or manufactured housing industries for a minimum of 25 years.
Also, beginning with the Class of 2017, Canadians may also be nominated.
“The Hall welcomes nominations from all RV and manufactured housing sectors — manufacturers, dealers, campgrounds, housing communities, suppliers, user groups, trade media, associations, etc. — for the class of 2018 and beyond,” said Searer.
“The nominating committee is especially interested in receiving nominations for deserving early pioneers who may have been forgotten, passed over or overlooked in the past. The Selection Committee is made up of an equal number of members of the RV and Manufactured Housing industries, and members will only vote on nominees from their respective industries.”
