It's a bit like Cooperstown

Induction into the SC Manufactured Housing Hall of Fame requires a 75 per cent vote.  There are specific criteria and a set voting procedure.  The selection committee meets once a year.

There are now enough people in the Hall of Fame that the members themselves serve as the selection committee. 

Some years the process has been easy.   The group talks first, with different members describing the accomplishments of individuals they have in mind. A consensus develops.  Once or twice, the vote has been unanimous.   Other times it takes several ballots before anyone gets 75%.

This year there was a strong consensus to elect 40-year-industry veteran Joe Walden and David Bennett, who served as Director for the state agency commission, the SC Manufactured Housing Board.    David will be inducted posthumously, unfortunately.  He was still running the board and doing a superb job of it when he became ill.  Click on  "Industry News" on the left for an article on Joe Walden's interesting ride in our industry.  We'll be announcing David induction and telling his story in a few days.  You're hearing about it first here.
