Nominations not accepted in a given year will be carried over for up to two successive years, for a total of three years. If this happens, the ACCM staff partner will contact the nominator and co-nominators to determine whether they continue to support the candidate’s nomination. If a candidate’s nomination is carried over for one year, the nominator has the option of revising the original letter of nomination. If a nomination is carried over for a second year, the nominator has the option of soliciting one additional letter of support. If a nomination is carried over for two consecutive years and the nominee is not accepted, a new nomination must be submitted for the nominee to be considered again. The criteria and requirements described above apply to this and any subsequent nominations.
Members of the ACCM Board of Regents and SCCM Council will not be eligible for nomination for MCCM until they have been out of office for two years.
The election of nominees for MCCM will be by a majority vote of the ACCM Board of Regents at its fall board meeting, with approval by SCCM Council at its fall meeting.
During the first five years that the honor has been conferred (2012–2016), there has been no limit to the number of Masters selected. Thereafter, beginning in 2017, there will be a limit of five Masters selected in any given year. There is no requirement that the Board or Council select any Masters in any given year. If an MCCM is awarded posthumously, the posthumous award will not be included in the number of MCCMs that can be awarded annually.
