Will all nominations receive a medal?
No. Awards will be evaluated by the Hall of Fame Committee based on the criteria above
How do I nominate someone?
Fill out the "Medal Nomination Form" as completely as you can. The committee may judge the
nomination based entirely on the information provided in the nomination form.
To recognize outstanding members not yet in the leadership structure, details would be
helpful; in other words, anything that made this person stand out from normal G.A.B.
members. If any additional information is needed, the committee will contact you.
How does the nomination process work?
After the form is received, the form will be reviewed by the Hall of Fame Committee. Additional
follow-up may be done with the nominator, team leader or persons involved and a decision
reached. The length of time this process takes will depend on how quickly the committee
receives responses from the appropriate parties.
The committee will notify the nominator of their decision. The nominee will receive a letter of
commendation if they are awarded Hall of Fame membership.
Can you be nominated or awarded more than once?
Yes. Multiple nominations will be listed if approved.
Also, if further service warrants it, the nominee can be moved up to the next award level.
What happened to the original G.A.B. Hall of Fame?
The Hall of Fame had become quite large and unmanageable.
It also did not seem to have standardized criteria on which to base awards. In order to keep the
Hall of Fame Awards a very special honor for our members, new and stricter standards were
put in place to evaluate future nominations. New Award levels were also designed to recognize
everything from a helpful Ensign to Retired Grand Admirals.
What types of things by themselves are NOT worthy of a Hall of Fame Award nomination?
He/she was nice to me
He/she sent me free cards
He/she was understanding when a trade went bad
He/she nominated me
Who makes the final decision of whether or not a medal is warranted?
The Nominations Committee, after receiving feedback from the necessary parties involved for
bronze and silver categories. If a Gold medal is merited, it will be awarded by the G.A.B. High Council.
What happens if a nomination is rejected?
If a nomination does not meet the criteria, it will be kept on file. If more nominations for that
person come in, the old nomination will be taken into consideration along with the new one.
Can a nomination be reconsidered?
Yes. If you feel the Nomination Committee did not take all the information into consideration,
you may resubmit your case to them. They will reexamine the nomination, possibly discussing it
with the High Council before coming to a final decision.
