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

The purpose of this Special Notice to Members is to announce the proposed nominees for the National Adjudicatory Council (NAC) from the New York and West Regions. The nominees, nominated for three-year terms beginning January 2007, are listed in Exhibit 1. The nominees will be proposed to NASD's National Nominating Committee unless an additional candidate comes forward within 14 calendar days from the date of this Special Notice.

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.
