FINRA Announces Election Results for District Committees, District Nominating Committees and the National Adjudicatory Council

The purpose of this Election Notice is to announce the names of the newly elected District Committee, District Nominating Committee and National Adjudicatory Council (NAC) members.

For the district committees, each of the candidates nominated by the Regional Nominating Committees has been duly elected to terms beginning on June 1, 2009. The newly elected District Committee members will serve three-year terms, and the newly elected District Nominating Committee members will serve one-year terms. The names of the new district committee members and the specific terms to which they were elected are listed in Attachment A.

In the NAC election, two seats were filled: a Small Firm NAC Member seat and a Large Firm NAC Member seat. In December 2008, the Nominating and Governance Committee of FINRA's Board of Governors nominated candidates for both open positions. Notice of these nominations was provided to FINRA member firms and one candidate successfully petitioned to have his name added as a candidate for the Small Firm NAC Member seat.
