Nominated Individuals to NFA's Board of Directors and 2011 Nominating Committee
On November 8, 2010, NFA notified its Members of the nominations made by the 2010 Nominating Committee for positions on NFA's Board of Directors and 2011 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. Therefore, there will be no contested election this year, and the nominees named below will fill the open positions on the Board and Nominating Committee.
FCM -- This year there are four open positions in the FCM category on the Board. Of the four FCM Board members whose terms do not expire next year, two are affiliated with FCMs that rank in the top ten FCMs based on the total amount of segregated funds and secured amounts as of June 30, 2010 and two are affiliated with non-top ten FCMs. Therefore, the four open FCM positions may be filled by either FCMs that rank in the top ten or by FCMs that do not rank in the top ten. The nominees are:
