Re: National Futures Association: Proposed Amendments to Article X of NFA's Articles of Incorporation*
Dear Ms. Webb:
Pursuant to Section 17(j) of the Commodity Exchange Act, as amended, National Futures Association ("NFA") hereby submits to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC" or "Commission") proposed amendments to Article X of NFA's Articles of Incorporation. The Articles amendments were ratified by NFA's Board of Directors ("Board") on November 18, 1999, and have since been adopted by a two-thirds vote of those Members actually voting in the Contract Market category and a majority of those Members actually voting in the FCM, LTM, and IB category and the Industry Participant (CPO and CTA) category.
NFA intends to make the amendments effective 10 days after receipt of this submission by the Commission unless the Commission notifies NFA within the 10-day period that the Commission has determined to review the amendments for approval.
