THE NOMINATION PROCESS
Nominate a Georgia radio professional to be inducted into the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame.
Members only may nominate in either the Legacy or Career Achievement categories.
Members will vote on the Career Achievement inductees.
Now there are two ways to nominate. Members may only nominate one person,
per category each calendar year. The deadline for Legacy submissions for a calendar
year is February 1st, and April 1st for Career Achievement.
Members are encouraged to submit their nomination by mail,
using a nomination form. Click HERE to print the nomination form.
Nominations should be sent via the United States Post Office, however,
if you prefer to use UPS, FEDEX, or another shipper, contact us for the
physical mailing address. Most will not ship to a post office box.
Members may now submit nominations via EMAIL
The likelihood that your nomination will be selected as a candidate
is directly affected by the amount of material submitted with the nomination.
To increase your nominee's chance of being selected, send complete bio information,
pictures, and audio. We can, and will return material upon request.
We start new each year, so a nomination made in the past will receive no consideration,
unless resubmitted with sufficient collateral material.
The deadline for nominations is April 1st each year. Legacy inductee families will be privately notified.
Career Achievement candidates names will be released to members in the May newsletter.
Those selected in member voting will be announced at the annual induction ceremony.
THE VOTING PROCESS
The Legacy Inductees are selected by the board of directors.
Members choose the Career Achievement inductees each year. *
In order to vote in the annual election, you must be a member by June 1st of the election year.
Voting takes place in July each year and is done via the Internet, therefore, members must have a valid non employment email address on file with us in order to vote. A member who provides an email address at their place of employment then has voting problems cannot be assisted unless they provide us with a non employment email address. It is the members responsibility to notify us in the event their email address changes.
Any member without Internet access may request a paper ballot by sending
a stamped self addressed envelope
The Georgia Radio Hall of Fame - PO Box 5153 - St. Marys, Georgia 31558
prior to June 15th of the year.
* Disclaimer: Final tabulation is percentage based using market membership data and candidate market identification.
Failure To Vote
A member who fails to vote in the previous two elections will be placed on an inactive list. The member does not loose the right to vote, however, they must contact us to be returned to active status. There may be a charge ($5.00) to enable a member to vote in an election in progress. The charge must be paid before the member can be reactivated.
The number of inductees annually will be up to the board of directors.
Additionally, there are two special awards (not necessarily given each year):
The Elmo Ellis Award Spirit Award and the Founder and Directors Award;
both are selected by the GRHoF board of directors.
Families of individuals selected as Legacy inductees will be notified in advance.
Names of Career Achievement inductees will be kept confidential
until the evening of the awards program.
Disclaimer: Final tabulation is percentage based using market membership data and candidate market identification.
