The Membership process . . .

Once a year, the  induction committee  accepts nominations of those men and women  the membership feels meet established criteria for induction. After a brief vetting process, including the number of candidates or class size for that year,  the vetted list is returned to the membership for a vote.

 

The final inductee announcement will follow shortly thereafter. The induction ceremony is generally held in April.
