Hall of Fame Nominations

Excellence Hall of Fame – Call for Nominations

Institute Members are invited to submit their 2020 nominations for the Excellence Hall of Fame.

Closing Date for Nominations is 31 August 2020.

1. Eligibility

To be eligible for nomination, a person needs to have been working for at least 20 years and must have track record demonstrating significant contribution to the organizations in which they have worked, the discipline of management, or society at large.

They must also not have been nominated in the last 3 years.

2. Nominations

Each member of the Institute can nominate somebody for inclusion in the Hall of Fame, if (i) they can get two other members to second the nomination and (ii) they have not nominated or seconded the nomination of somebody else in the year. Nominations must be accompanied by a detailed bio containing independently verifiable information to be submitted including all the supporting information to be considered in determining whether the nominee should be elected to the Hall of Fame.


3. Election

The Institute’s Nominations Committee (which is drawn from its membership) reviews nominations to ensure they are complete and that all the people nominated are eligible. They produce a list of qualified nominees with a summary of their career (nature, length, depth and scope) and the influences the nominees have had on others. It shall also highlight the nominee’s:

  • Ability to demonstrate (s)he has delivered excellent results in a consistent manner
  • Ability to demonstrate (s)he is a role model of the Institute’s values
  • Ability to demonstrate (s)he has learned from mistakes

Profile(s) will be circulated to all of the Institute’s Fellows who are asked to review the nominations – evaluating their business acumen and leadership as well as how inspiring they have been to others among other things – and then vote “Yes”, “No”, or “Abstain” for each candidate by secret ballot.

If, ignoring abstentions, over 75% of the votes for a nominee are “Yes” then he or she is deemed to be elected if less than 5 nominees would be elected by this process. If over 4 candidates would be elected, then the number of “Yes” votes for each is counted and the three people with the highest tally are deemed to be elected.
