The FAQs

Who can nominate?
Anyone can nominate a G.A.B. member.

Who can be nominated?
Any G.A.B. member in good standing who has shown superior leadership or given something extra to G.A.B. or its members can be nominated.

What are the levels?
Bronze Medal of Achievement
Silver Medal of Valor
Gold Medal of Honor

What are some of the basic criteria for the levels?

Bronze Medal of Achievement -
  • Outstanding G.A.B. leadership (Team or Section Leaders)
  • Committee participation (Internal Affairs, etc.)
  • Service to G.A.B. or its members that goes beyond normal expectations of a G.A.B. member

  • High Council membership
  • Special Committee leadership
  • Other extraordinary services for G.A.B.
Gold Medal of Honor - (Awarded by a vote of the High Council)
All criteria set forth for Bronze & Silver levels and years of service to G.A.B
something truly remarkable that changes the nature of G.A.B. organization for the better.

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.
