The American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation today opened the call for nominations for 2019 inductees into the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame. All members of the foundation are eligible to nominate and to second a nomination.

“There is no higher honor than induction into the Hall of Fame. This is your opportunity as a foundation member to nominate someone that you believe is worthy, no matter their role in the industry,” says Jeff Child, President of the foundation. “The Selection Committee is looking for input into those individuals who demonstrate continuing excellence and who have made contributions that have changed the industry. The nomination form, which can be found on our website www.homefurnishingshalloffame.com will walk you through the process.”

During an intensive five-month selection process, the Hall of Fame Selection Committee carefully considers an extensive list of individuals to determine who most exemplifies enduring excellence, superior accomplishments, innovation and creativity, and philanthropic generosity of their time, talents and resources. The final selection is determined by a points-based system, with ballots cast individually and online by each of the seven selection committee members. The ballots are received and verified by the foundation’s accounting firm, Sharrard McGee.

To qualify for consideration, the individual must conduct business in the United States, have served in the industry for at least 15 years, have created a legacy as a positive influence and champion of the industry, and should have achieved the pinnacle of their careers and are a least 60 years old. For posthumous nominations, the individual must have been deceased for at least 12 months prior to the date of the nomination.

Members may submit nominations by Feb. 1. Nomination forms and lists of current members, previous nominees and inductees are available on the foundation website at www.homefurnishingshalloffame.com. Members may also obtain printed copies of the documents by calling 336.882.5900.

To submit a nomination, a re-nomination or a posthumous nomination, foundation members are required to complete the nomination form found on the website at www.homefurnishingshalloffame.com. A print or a 300 dpi digital photo of the candidate must be enclosed. All nominations must be seconded, in writing, by another foundation member.

The completed nomination package must be postmarked no later than Feb. 1, 2018, and sent to American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation, Inc., 202 Neal Place, Suite 101, High Point, NC 27262.

New inductees will be honored at the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Induction Celebration on Oct. 20 during the fall High Point Market.
