Any resident of Canada who holds a current Amateur station licence issued by the Government of Canada or any Canadian Amateur Radio organization, other than Radio Amateurs of Canada, may submit a nomination for Member of the Canadian Amateur Radio Hall of Fame. Membership in RAC is not mandatory.
Any resident of Canada who holds a current Amateur Radio station licence issued by the Government of Canada, except a Radio Amateurs of Canada employee, officer, director, assistant director, volunteer manager, or leadership official in the Field Organization, may be appointed as a Member of the Hall. Membership in RAC is not mandatory. Any eligible person may receive an appointment as Member of the Hall, for outstanding achievement and excellence of the highest degree, for serious and sustained service to Amateur Radio in Canada, or to Amateur Radio at large.
Nomination or appointment for Member or Honorary Member of the Hall may be after the death of the nominee.
A person who is not a resident of Canada may be appointed only as an Honorary Member of the Hall. The other requirements for appointment as Honorary Member of the Hall are the same as for Member.
Only the RAC Board of Directors, by majority vote, is allowed to nominate candidates for Honorary Member (those persons not residents of Canada). Because of the requirement for Canadian residency for appointment as Member of the Hall, it is incumbent upon the nominator to confirm the Canadian residency of a nominee prior to submitting a nomination.
Nominations shall be submitted on the Canadian Amateur Radio Hall of Fame Nomination Form , (download from the RAC website) and shall include a biographical sketch or curriculum vitae and three references. All nominations for Member of the Hall must be received at RAC Headquarters by the close of the last business day of September. Late nominations will be considered in the next year.
Once received, all handling shall be conducted in a secure and confidential manner. On or before the last business day of November, the Chair of the Board of Trustees shall advise the Custodian (RAC) of the decisions of the Board of Trustees on appointments for the calendar year. The Board may appoint a person who has been nominated in a previous year. For this reason, no advice shall be issued to the nominator that the nomination has not resulted in an appointment, nor any reason given why an appointment has not been made as a result of that nomination. Also, no reason shall be given for an appointment.
