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.”

At the Modular Building Institute’s (MBI) annual conference in Orlando, Florida last week, the president of Whitley Manufacturing, Simon Dragan, was inducted into the association’s Hall of Fame as part of its World of Modular event. A veteran of the modular industry for over 30 years, Dragan came to the U.S. as a refugee from Romania with $10.00 in his pocket and began his career as a draftsman in 1972. MarketWatch tells He later joined what became Williams Scotsman, and then purchased their flagship factory in South Whitley, Indiana, in the northeastern part of the state. With plants in Marysville, Washington and Rochester, Indiana as well as South Whitley, the company has constructed diverse commercial modular buildings nationwide and overseas, winning over 50 “Awards of Distinction” from the MBI. Says Dragan: “I have succeeded because of my employees, many who have been with me for over 20 years. I thank them for their hard work and dedication to our industry.”
