2. All nominations must be submitted on the CHA Honour Roll/Memorial Scroll nomination form.
3. Provincial Associations may submit a total of only two nominations for either or both the Honour Roll and Memorial Scroll each year (e.g. 2 Honour Roll, 2 Memorial Scroll, or 1 of each; NOT 2 Honour Roll and 2 Memorial Scroll).
4. Nominations should be submitted and signed by two persons who are members in good standing with the Canadian Hereford Association.
5. Persons making a nomination should carefully consider how the nominee is to be presented, i.e. as an individual, husband and wife, farm/ranch name, business, etcetera. And they should pay close attention to the importance of each section as indicated by the scoring system.
6. A complete biography of the nominee is required with particular emphasis on involvement in the Hereford industry.
7. A CHA director from the province that submits a nomination is required to review the completed nomination form, prior to the nomination being submitted to the CHA for preparation for the Board.

Selection
1. Canadian Hereford Association Staff will review submissions to ensure they have met guidelines.
2. Copies of all submissions are provided to all current members of the Canadian Hereford Association Board for review and scoring.
3. Board members score each application independently of each other using the attached board approved Scoring System and return scoring to the Canadian Hereford Association as soon as possible.
4. Canadian Hereford Association Staff will compile the results and submissions receiving average scores greater than 75 will be eligible nominees.

7. Once the Board of Directors has been informed with the names of successful nominees, the inductees will be sent a congratulatory letter with a copy to the nominating province. Inductees are asked to either provide or approve a biography and a head and shoulders photograph. The CHA AGM will be suggested as a suitable location for the presentation, however, if this is not suitable the inductees will be asked to select a date and location that works best for them.
8. Regardless of where the official presentation to the inductees is made, the official announcement of the induction is conducted at the CHA AGM.
