In any given year, there can be between two and six inductees into the Hall of Fame.

The committee will meet in July to review the nominations received and to propose a slate of five living and three posthumous candidates for consideration via a ballot of current members of the TIA board, TIA board members who have served in the previous five years, and former Hall of Fame inductees.
