NASD Announces Nominees for Regional Industry Member Vacancies on the National Adjudicatory Council

The purpose of this Special Notice to Members is to announce the nominees for the National Adjudicatory Council (NAC) for the New York and West Regions. The nominees, nominated for a three-year term beginning in January 2004, are listed in Exhibit I. These nominees will be proposed to NASD’s National Nominating Committee in 14 calendar days, unless the election is contested.

We appreciate the interest shown by many members in expressing their desire to serve on the NAC and thank everyone for their continuing support of the self-regulatory process. The New York and West Regional Nominating Committees thoroughly reviewed the background of every candidate before selecting their nominees in an effort to secure appropriate and fair representation of both regions.

Questions concerning this Special Notice to Members may be directed to Barbara Z. Sweeney, Senior Vice President and Corporate Secretary, NASD, at (202) 728-8062 or via e-mail.
