SCCA Seeks Nominations for Hall of Fame Class and Committees
TOPEKA, Kan. (Aug. 24, 2010) --Sports Car Club of America is currently seeking nominations for the SCCA Hall of Fame Class of 2010. Up to five nominees will be selected for induction into the Hall of Fame on February 12, 2011, at the SCCA National Convention Presented by Gumout.
The SCCA National Hall of Fame was created in 2004 to preserve, protect and record the history and accomplishments of the Club by acknowledging those members who've made a significant impact on the development of the SCCA, be it through service to the national organization, achievements in national competition or brining national recognition to SCCA.
Nominations will be accepted through Sept. 30 and can be sent to SCCAHof@scca.com or to the attention of Howard Duncan at the SCCA National Office (P.O. Box 19400, Topeka, KS 66619 or fax 785-862-7183). Nominations should include a list of the nominee's accomplishments and a summary of why he or she should be selected. Those who have been nominated previously, but not selected, can always be re-nominated to ensure the most up-to-date and thorough information.
"Being inducted into the SCCA Hall of Fame is a tremendous honor," SCCA President and CEO Jeff Dahnert said. "This is where you will find those who have been our greatest contributors and most successful competitors. It's also an opportunity to honor those that may have achieved their greatest notoriety in other racing organizations, but achieved that only after success in SCCA. I encourage all members to share with the committee the individuals that made an indelible positive mark on the Club as a National organization."
After reviewing the potential candidates, the SCCA Hall of Fame Nominating Committee will select 15 official nominees to submit to the SCCA Hall of Fame Selection Committee. The Selection Committee will then conduct additional research on the 15 nominees before choosing the final inductees, who will be formally announced in December. The Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony for the Class of 2011 will take place at the 2010 SCCA National Convention in Las Vegas, Feb. 10-12.
In addition to nominees for the Hall of Fame, resumes are being accepted for consideration on the Nominating and Selection committees. Interested individuals should contact Howard Duncan at the above information.
