Nomination Procedure

Nominations received before the deadline shall be screened by the H.O. Judging Coordinator to eliminate ineligible individuals or incomplete nomination forms. The nominator must ensure accurate dates are entered that support the nominee’s activities for verification by the H.O. Judging Coordinator.

After verification, nominations will be forwarded to PPPC’s Hall of Fame Committee (members of the Hall of Fame) who will evaluate each candidate by means of a weighted points system allocated to each criterion on the nomination form. Candidates must score a minimum of 60 points in Section ‘A’ – INVOLVEMENT IN THE PROMOTIONAL PRODUCT PROFESSIONALS OF CANADA plus a minimum of 25 Points in Sections ‘B’ and ‘C’ combined, for a total candidate score of 85 points in order to be eligible for consideration. Each judge will submit his/her scores in strict confidence to the Judging Coordinator. Scores are not shared amongst the judges or divulged to any other party at any time.

The Judging Coordinator then informs the Hall of Fame Committee of the names of the candidates who have scored the required minimum aggregate score of 85 points of which 60 points must have been achieved in Section ‘A’. A conference call is then held by the Hall of Fame Committee members who participated in the scoring process to discuss the accomplishments of the qualifying nominee(s) to determine who best meets the criteria for induction into the Hall of Fame.

When the majority of Hall of Fame Committee members reach a consensus, the Chair of the Hall of Fame Committee then formally notifies the National Board of Directors in writing of the Committee’s final selection for induction into the Hall of Fame.

The Board of Directors then vote on the recommendation of the Hall of Committee. If accepted, the nominator and the nominee will then be informed of the good news.

Candidates who meet the minimum scoring requirements as outlined above, but who are not inducted, will automatically be reconsidered for induction in the next two years (for a total of three years) by the Hall of Fame Committee. After that period of time, if the individual has not been inducted, he/she must be nominated again before being reconsidered. Candidates who score less than the minimum required points will not be automatically reconsidered. They must be nominated again.

THE DECISION OF THE COMMITTEE IS FINAL AND CANNOT BE REVOKED.
