Wireless History Foundation Opens Nominations for 2012 Wireless Hall of Fame
Today the Wireless History Foundation announced that nominations for the 2012 Wireless Hall of Fame will be due no later than March 15. Nominations will be accepted in four categories: Service Provider, Technology, Industry Associate, and Pioneer. A candidate must be recommended by one nominator and two seconders. Nomination forms and supporting documents are available on the WHF website at www.wirelesshistoryfoundation.org/whf-hall-fame/wireless-hall-fame-dinner .
"Wireless has a rich, fascinating history, and the Wireless Hall of Fame offers the premier platform to recognize individuals who have made game-changing contributions to this industry," said WHF Executive Director Liz Maxfield.
Candidates are nominated by their peers and selected according to a consistent set of criteria by a committee composed primarily of Hall of Fame members. Inductees will be honored at the Wireless Hall of Fame Dinner on October 8 in San Diego, the evening before the CTIA Enterprise and Applications 2012 tradeshow.
Thirty-two individuals have been inducted into the Wireless Hall of Fame since its inception in 2000. Current members represent ground-breaking achievements in all areas of technology, business and public service. Eligibility for the Wireless Hall of Fame is based on an individual’s contributions to the advancement of wireless services, products, and programs.
