Even though six months remain until the deadline, Darryl Searer, president of the RV/MH Heritage Foundation wanted to remind MHProNews, and industry professionals, that if they are considering nominating someone, now’s a good time to begin working on it.

Even though we are intensely planning for the induction dinner celebration for the Class of 2017 on August 7, 2017, it’s really not too early to start the process of nominating a deserving individual to the Hall of Fame for the Class of 2018,” said Searer.

It’s a lengthy process that should not wait until the last minute, so I urge those who are considering a nominee to download the guidelines and forms so their nominee can be considered for the Class of 2018.”

Nomination guidelines state that anyone can nominate a person to the Hall of Fame that meets the eligibility requirements. The only people who may not be considered are those who currently serve on the Hall’s Selection Committee.

In order to be eligible, nominees must be, or have been, an active participant in any segment of the recreation vehicle, campground, or manufactured housing industries for a minimum of 25 years.

Also, beginning with the Class of 2017, Canadians may also be nominated.2018RVMHHallofFameCallforNominationscreditMHRVHOF2-postedtothedailybusinessnewsmhpronewsmhlivingnews

 

 

 

 

The Hall welcomes nominations from all RV and manufactured housing sectors — manufacturers, dealers, campgrounds, housing communities, suppliers, user groups, trade media, associations, etc. — for the class of 2018 and beyond,” said Searer.

The nominating committee is especially interested in receiving nominations for deserving early pioneers who may have been forgotten, passed over or overlooked in the past. The Selection Committee is made up of an equal number of members of the RV and Manufactured Housing industries, and members will only vote on nominees from their respective industries.”

RV/MH Hall of Fame Museum Still Going

December 26th, 2011 Comments off

RVTimes tells MHProNews.com the RV/MH Hall of Fame Museum in Elkhart, Indiana, has managed to keep its doors open despite a debt of nearly $5 million as of last April when Tom McNulty took the reins as executive director. He says, “There are some good things happening and actually our cash flow is better than it’s been in a couple of years. Attendance during the summer was 100 to 150 people a day and we are seeing greater returns from our convention center.” Noting that while continuing to operate in the red, he adds, “At times we think we see the light at the end of the tunnel, but then someone turns off the switch. It’s very frustrating to say the least.” The museum has a $900,000 line of credit with First Source Bank. The family of the late Boots Ingram, who founded Teton Homes, loaned the museum $3.1 million. Both loans were made when the economy was in better shape. Bill Garpow, chairman of the Hall of Fame, says discussion is ongoing with the Ingram family to help resolve the debt, and the convention center already has $100,000 in bookings for 2012. He notes, “The good news is that it’s hard to find anybody that doesn’t say we need the hall, that we need to support it, that it’s a good endeavor. That tells me that if people start feeling better about their situation, then our situation could also improve.”
