Notice I-07-46

December 07, 2007

Nominated Individuals to NFA's Board of Directors and 2008 Nominating Committee and Notice of Annual Meeting

On November 14, 2007, NFA notified its Members of the nominations made by the 2007 Nominating Committee for positions on NFA's Board of Directors and 2008 Nominating Committee. At that time, Members were also given the opportunity to make other nominations by petition, in accordance with Article VII, Section 3(b) and Article X, Section 3 of NFA's Articles of Incorporation. The deadline to submit nominations by petition has passed and no candidates were added via petition.

In our November 14th Notice to Members, we mentioned that there would be a contested election this year in the FCM Other category on the Board of Directors. However, one of the nominees in this category has subsequently withdrawn his name from consideration. Therefore, there will be no contested election this year, and the nominees named on the attached will fill the open positions on the Board and Nominating Committee.

The annual meeting of NFA Members will be held on Thursday, February 21, 2008, at National Futures Association, 300 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 1800, Chicago, Illinois, and will begin at 11:00 AM (Central Time). Under Bylaw 405, one hundred Members constitute a quorum. In the absence of a quorum, the Members in attendance may act to adjourn the meeting.
