HLRSC Hall of Fame

The HLRSC Hall of Fame was established in 1997 for the purpose of recognizing and showcasing special and dedicated breeders who have made significant contributions to the Holland Lop breed and its advancement.  Hall of Fame Inductees are chosen by a selected committee and honored at the annual ARBA Convention.  The HLRSC would like to thank and congratulate the Hall of Fame inductees for the impact they have made not only on the breed but also in the lives of many fanciers.

To learn more about the HLRSC Hall of Fame inductees and their service and dedication to the Holland Lop breed, feel free to check out their Bio .

HLRSC Hall of Fame

  • Nominee is required to have raised Holland Lop rabbits for at least ten consecutive years.

  • Nominee is required to have been a member of the HLRSC for at least ten consecutive years.

  • Nominee is required to have served as an HLRSC officer, HLRSC Board member or HLRSC committee member.

  • Nominee is required to demonstrate activity in a local, state or regional Holland Lop club.

  • Nominee should have been instrumental in the promotion and improvement of the Holland Lop through successful breeding.

  • Nominee should have given assistance to others in their quest to raise and show quality animals.

  • Nominee is required to have been an exemplary showman on all levels. Sportsmanship, honesty and integrity will all be taken into consideration for induction. Each nomination will be accompanied by a minimum of three letters of recommendation from HLRSC members, from at least three different zones.

  • A deceased member or couple* may be considered if the above criteria are met.

  • Nominations must be mailed with a postmark no later than June 1st or e-mailed with a date no later than June 1st to the Vice President of the HLRSC. The Vice President will screen all applications on the above qualifications. If an application is deemed questionable, the Vice President will consult with the President as to whether the candidate meets the above requirements and should be placed on the list of nominee(s).

  • By July 1st the Vice President will mail a first class packet containing the nominations, including letters of recommendation, a return self-addressed stamped envelope. The list of nominee(s) will include all approved nominee(s) as well as the option not to induct any member for that year. The vote must be returned to the Vice President with a postmark no later than August 1st. If a vote is not received from any member of the executive board, it will be considered a vote that “no one shall be inducted.”

  • If a member of the Executive Board is nominated, that member will not receive a packet containing the nominations and will not vote. The President and Vice president will only be eligible for nomination after they leave office so as not to conflict with their duties while in office.

  • A tie vote is to be broken by the President.

  • By September 1st, the Vice President will send the results to the Executive Board. A nominee must have at least seven executive board votes to be inducted into the HLRSC Hall of Fame. The Vice President is responsible for purchasing an award with the inductees name and the year they were inducted. All Hall of Fame members will become a lifetime member of the HLRSC. This lifetime membership includes first class postage for the Hollander.

  • Only one nominee or couple* may be inducted per year. It is not a requirement to induct a new member to the Hall of Fame each year.

  • These are only guidelines and may be altered or changed if the Executive Board votes to allow for special circumstances. *The definition of “a couple” is as follows: spouses, committed or domestic partners together, where each, individually, would still meet all of the above criteria for induction into the Hall of Fame. Partnerships, solely in a rabbitry are not considered a couple for the purpose of the Hall of Fame award.

  • These definitions are as per our Constitution:

                 Executive Committee - President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer

                 Executive Board – President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Directors
