The Hall of Fame recognizes individuals in three categories: cruise retailer, cruise line executive, and an at-large category encompassing an additional retailer or cruise executive, shipbuilder, publisher, politician, or any individual whose cruise industry contributions warrant acknowledgment. CLIA-member travel agents can obtain nomination forms through the Travel Agent Center at []. Completed forms can be submitted by fax at 212-921-9360 or by e-mail at [email protected]. Nominations will be considered and reviewed by a Hall of Fame Nomination Committee comprising representatives from CLIA's Travel Agency Advisory Board and member cruise line executives, who will present a slate of candidates to CLIA's Executive Committee for ratification. The newest CLIA Hall of Fame honorees will be inducted at a dinner ceremony on the inaugural evening of cruise3sixty in Fort Lauderdale April 8–11.
