Complete and submit it before April 1st.
The likelihood that your nomination will be selected as a candidate
is directly affected by the amount of material submitted with the nomination.

send complete bio and contact information and,

Incomplete nomination forms will be returned
to member who made the submission.
We start new each year, so a nomination made in the past will receive no consideration, unless resubmitted with the required collateral material.
Career Achievement inductees selected in member voting will be announced at the annual induction ceremony.
THE VOTING PROCESS
The Legacy Inductees are selected by management.
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 to:
The Georgia Radio Hall of Fame - PO Box 3459 - LaGrange, Georgia 30241
prior to June 15th of the year.
The results of the vote tabulation are then weighed against market membership to determine the number of final inductees from a particular market (or ADI) and candidate market identification. Voting is conducted by an independent firm. Final inductee names are announced at our annual Induction Awards Event.
Failure To Vote
A member who fails to vote in the previous three 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. A $10.00 donation is required.
The number of inductees annually will be up to management.
