The Process

The Selection Committee is responsible for verifying that the Nominee information is accurate and truthful.

Any Nominee must be approved by at least 75% of the combined selection committee. The Chair may only vote in order to break a tie.

Any Nominee so selected by the Selection Committee must receive the unanimous approval through a vote by the Board.

No current member of the Circle or the Management Team or anyone directly related to a member of the Circle or the Management Team may be nominated as an inductee.

The number of annual inductees per year will be based on the applications received; the final selection does not require a specific number each year.

It is not a requirement that every category be represented each and every year.

Any category may have more than one recipient if the selection committee deems this appropriate.

Inductees may be awarded posthumously.
