What is the IHSCDEA Hall of Fame?
A bit of history is in order for some of our members who were not around when we began this association back in 1952. The IHSCDEA has a group of distinguished individuals recognized for their commitment and dedication to Illinois Driver Education and Traffic Safety since our inception in 1952. For a number of years we called this elite group of individuals Honorary Life Members. The Board of Directors decided a number of years ago to change the name of this group to the IHSCDEA Hall of Fame.
Possible candidates are nominated for their accomplishments and dedication by any current association member at the Fall Workshops throughout the state each year. A committee of Board Members and current Hall of Fame members evaluate all the candidates submitted to determine if they meet the criteria established by our association. A candidate's name and resume must be submitted to the Chairman of the Hall of Fame Committee by December 1(See Below) of the year prior to the upcoming Spring Conference.
The Hall of Fame Committee recommends possible candidates to the Board of Directors at the January Board Meeting each year. The board then votes on the individual for induction at the Annual Conference each spring.
