CLGMA HONORS & HALL OF FAME
ABOUT CLGMA Honors & Hall of Fame
The Catholic Liturgical & Gospel Music Awards Honors & Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony recognizes organizations and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to advancement of the vision of CLGMA. It also celebrates organizations and inducts individuals whose Liturgical and Gospel music legacies have left a lasting mark in propagating Christ.
GUIDELINES FOR CLGMA HALL OF FAME SELECTION
The CLGMA Hall Of Fame Nominee Is an individual or group considered based on profound impact on propagating Christ through Liturgical & Gospel Music.
- Nominees are to be judged on the degree of their contribution to the advancement of Liturgical & Gospel music and on the breadth of their impact.
- Nominees may be selected irrespective of whether such individual is living or deceased; provided that a deceased individual shall not be eligible for selection to the CLGMA Hall of Fame until two (2) years after such person’s death.
- Nominee who receives a majority of votes by electors shall be selected as a CLGMA Hall of Fame inductee.
- Identification of the scope of a nominee‘s activity in Liturgical & Gospel music shall be flexible. Nominees may have excelled in a narrow, specific sphere such as songwriting, publishing, composing, performing, recording, etc., or a nominee may have been active in several areas. In any case, nominees must have achieved definitive recognition and respect in the fields of Liturgical & Gospel music.
- An individual or group shall become eligible for nomination 25 years after they initially became involved in Liturgical or Gospel Music. The time factor of a nominee`s impact on Liturgical or Gospel music is flexible. It may cover an uninterrupted span of many years, or it may cover distinct and separate time periods. However, a nominee may earn CLGMA Hall of Fame selection by one transient act, provided the impact on Liturgical or Gospel music is deemed historically significant.
- A significant criterion in evaluating a nominee will be the degree to which the nominee multiplies his/her/their influence through others to create an impact on Liturgical or Gospel music far beyond his/her/their own direct individual contribution.
CODE OF CONDUCT FOR CLGMA HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES
All CLGMA Hall of Fame Inductees must reflect a lifestyle in keeping with Christian principles and upholding the moral tenets of the Catholic faith.
The CLGMA Board of Adjudicators is commissioned to evaluate Nominees on the degree of their contribution to the advancement of Liturgical & Gospel music and on the breath of their impact. It relies on public information available to inform all nomination decisions prior to the nominees being voted on.
An individual or group is not eligible to be a CLGMA Hall of Fame nominee if they have been publicly accused of an act of moral turpitude, a violation of federal or state law or any other conduct which subjects them or the CLGMA to public ridicule. If substantiated charges are brought against a current CLGMA Hall of Fame inductee, the CLGMA Board of Adjudicators will convene and determine if the honor awarded should be revoked.
