How to Nominate

Induction Ceremonies

The induction ceremony is held on the second Friday in May during even numbered years (e.g., May 9, 2014 and May 13, 2016).

 

Nomination Process

A call for nominations is sent out via local newspapers and posted online each October preceding an induction ceremony (e.g., October 2013 and October 2015). Please note, if a candidate is not voted in the first year a nomination is presented, they will typically be considered in future nomination calls. Many inductees are presented to the committee more than once before they are voted into the Hall of Fame.
