In the fall of each year, the Board of Directors gathers nominations and in December they choose the inductees for the year. An annual luncheon in March is the official induction ceremony for the new members of the Hall of Fame.
All nomination forms and corresponding information is due to the Selection Committee by November 1 to be considered for that year. Any information received after this date will be considered the next year. An individual may be nominated for three (3) consecutive years but then cannot be considered for one (1) year before starting the process again.
Making a Nomination
When making a nomination please provide detailed relevant background information describing the nominee’s contributions to the citrus industry, along with a photo of the nominee. The impact to the citrus industry will be the main consideration; however other activities may also be of interest.

Electronic nominations, Word or pdf files, are encouraged. Please provide information that is creative but not too lengthy.
