Nomination Procedure

  1. Self-evaluate the chances of your potential nominee - see here

  2. Complete a candidate nomination form.

  3. The nominee’s biography should include the candidate’s marathon swimming/contribution history and clearly outline why the candidate should be inducted into the IMSHOF or receive an ISHOF Award.

  4. Get the official nomination forms (see the next tab "Forms" download and save under a different name on your PC).

  5. A member of the Executive Committee (or approved delegate) will perform a "lite" fact check on the completed form

       and sign.  If a potentially significant question is raised during the voting process – the nominees’ vote will not be

       considered until the question is answered.  If the result is a nomination less impressive the Executive Committee will

       ignore the votes and either roll the corrected nomination to the next year or consider if the offence was Fraud and bar         a future nomination.
