The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame also announced changes to its election process that will more carefully examine candidates from the International, Men’s Veteran’s, Women’s Veteran's, and Contributor Committees. Since 2011, the Hall of Fame has allowed these categories to be stand-alone ‘direct-elect’ committees with the objective of ensuring candidates who may have ‘fallen through the cracks’ received focused and specialized consideration in these various categories. The Election Process Committee has determined that this objective of more acute consideration has been met during this 12-year period, and now candidates put forth from these categories will revert back to the previous and traditional process of being presented for final consideration to the Honors Committee for election.
