The Builder Category has the largest number of honoured members in CARHA Hockey's Hockey Hall of Fame, with 30 inductees. This figure is understandable when we consider the amount of work and dedication required of individuals to build the association from infancy to the strong national organization it is today. Also, the strong promoters and leaders of our hockey programs are easily identified. Their stories of commitment are quickly attested to, requiring less work to document and submit, but their necessity to the success of the association is extremely important.
The candidates for induction in this category come from every facet of our game, including players, team representatives, league executive, team/club executive, tournament committee members, sponsors, referees, CARHA Hockey Board of Management, CARHA Hockey employees, and others. The submissions for inductees will emphasize the individual strengths in their respective area of expertise and commitment-specifically directed at how these efforts enhance the growth and development of the association and its hockey programs. Once again, appreciating that the selection committee may not know the candidate, the nomination package must contain sufficient documentation to allow for a fair and informed decisions.
