To become a Cable TV Pioneer, a candidate must have a minimum of 20 years of direct involvement in the cable industry; demonstrated leadership and progress in their positions, as well as contributed to their communities.
A candidate requires two sponsors. The nominating and co-sponsoring Pioneers cannot be affiliated with the candidate or with each other by a business or family relationship. Both sponsors must be Pioneers for at least three years and their dues must be current. A Pioneer may nominate only one candidate or may co-sponsor just one candidate each year.
