To ensure that Canada’s Telecommunications Hall of Fame is at all times operated in accordance with the highest principles and standards of fairness, transparency, impartiality and independence, we have created stringent governance structures and arrangements:
• Canada’s Telecommunications Hall of Fame is a Not-For-Profit corporation, with a CRA registered charitable number, a Board of Directors and staff member(s), and several operational Committees comprised of well-respected and independent members with considerable telecom experience and expertise.
• Fundraising for Canada’s Telecommunications Hall of Fame (CTHOF) is the role of the CTHOF Foundation, a second Not-For-Profit corporation with a CRA registered charitable number and a blue-ribbon Board of Governors comprised of senior telecom industry association executives and former leaders of Canada’s telecommunications industry.
• Our Hall of Fame Selections and Nominations Committee which selected the Class of 2007 Laureates which was inducted on October 16, 2007 at the 2007 Telecom Laureate Awards is comprised of knowledgeable, independent and respected industry representatives:
• The Hall of Fame Laureate Nomination process is open to the public through our web-site at www.telecomhall.ca and nominations can be made on-line or by downloading our Nomination form and faxing or mailing a completed form to Canada’s Telecommunications Hall of Fame. Laureate Nominations for the Class of 2008 will be accepted until March 15, 2008. Nominations received after that date are eligible for consideration to the Laureate Class of 2009.
• All nominations will be carefully screened by our Hall of Fame Laureate Nominations Committee, comprised of seven well-respected and knowledgeable industry members and chaired by 2005 Laureate, Professor Hudson Janisch.
• Leading candidates for Laureate selection will then be carefully reviewed by the Hall of Fame Laureate Selections Committee, chaired by 2005 Laureate, David Colville, which will then select the Class of 2008 Laureates for induction at the 2008 Telecom Laureate Awards in October 2008.
• Both of the Nominations and Selections Committee will perform their duties relying upon written, merit-based criteria for Laureate selection and induction into Canada’s Telecommunications Hall of Fame.
• The CTHOF Foundation Board of Governors, in keeping with the Foundation’s role as the fundraising arm of Canada’s Telecommunications Hall of Fame, do not participate in the deliberations of the Nominations Committee or the Selection Committee and are not involved in the Laureate selection process.
