American Furniture Hall of Fame Calls for Nominations

HIGH POINT, N.C.-The American Furniture Hall of Fame Foundation has opened nominations for new candidates to become an Industry Fellow and to be inducted into the American Furniture Hall of Fame later this year.  Foundation members are eligible to nominate, second and vote.

An independent Industry Fellows Selection committee will choose the best qualified candidates for the ballot. Industry Fellows are then determined by the combination of a vote of the membership and a points-based rating of each nominee by the Selection Committee.

Each nominee must conduct business in the United States; have served in the industry for at least 15 years and have created a legacy as a positive influence and champion of the industry. If deceased, the individual may not have died in the 12 months prior to the date of the nomination. 

Members may make nominations between Feb. 15 and March 16. Ballots, along with a list of nominees and their biographical information, will be mailed in early June. The winners will be announced and inducted at the American Furniture Hall of Fame banquet on Oct. 14 during the Fall High Point Market.

Nomination forms and lists of current members, previous nominees and inductees are available on the Foundation website at Printed copies of the documents are available by calling 336.882.5900.
