Nominees & Inductees
The procedure of selection and voting for nominees and inductees into the WPHF is performed by the WPHF membership at large, with each member (the Officers and Board of Directors included), casting one vote. The process begins in late summer when nomination requests are mailed to the entire roster of members. The returned forms are presented unopened, to a certified public accountant for tabulation, and are returned to the WPHF Board.
The qualified nominees are posted on a ballot in their appropriate categories, and again, sent to the entire membership where this vote is for induction. The tabulation process is repeated and the resulting information (tabulated only by the Certified Public Accountants) allows the board to manufacture the awards and plaques. At this time, only the Lifetime Achievement Award winner is made public. All other award winners are only known by the CPA and kept secure, until late Fall, when the sealed envelopes are opened for each respective category at the Awards Ceremony.
