CLIA Invites Hall of Fame Nominations

The Cruise Lines International Association is inviting member travel agencies to nominate candidates to its 2006 Hall of Fame, which honors individuals whose efforts and accomplishments have made an enduring, positive impact on the cruise industry. Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 15. 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 [www.cruising.org]. 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.
