Request for Public Director Nominations for NFA's Board of Directors
NFAs Articles of Incorporation ("Articles") provide for nine (9) Public Representative positions on NFAs Board of Directors ("the Board"). Article VII, Section 2(c) (ii) defines Public Representatives as "individuals who are not employed by any Member of NFA." The Articles further provide that at least four (4) Public Representatives may have no direct association with a business enterprise in the commodity futures industry.
The terms of four (4) current Public RepresentativesAlan J. Dixon, Warren W. Lebeck, Bruce F. Osborne and William E. Sealeare set to expire at the Boards 1997 regular annual meeting. Mr. Dixon, Mr. Lebeck, Mr. Osborne and Mr. Seale are all eligible for reelection. NFA is asking its Members for nominations to fill these vacancies on the Board. At the Boards regular annual meeting, scheduled for Thursday, February 20, 1997, the Board will select from among the nominees four Public Representatives to serve on the Board for three-year terms.
Because public representation on NFAs Board of Directors is an important matter, we ask that you give serious consideration to submitting a nomination to fill these vacancies. All nominations must be received at the address below on or before Friday, December 27, 1996.
