Sec. 6.6  The Secretary of the Corporation shall provide administrative support to all candidates by sending to FINRA members eligible to vote based on the firm size classifications (Small Firm, Mid-Size Firm, or Large Firm) defined in these By-Laws up to two mailings of materials prepared by the candidates. The Corporation shall pay the postage for the mailings. If a candidate wants such mailings sent, the candidate shall prepare such material on the candidate’s personal stationery. The material shall state that it represents the opinion of the candidate. The candidate shall provide a copy of such material for each member eligible to vote in the size classification of the open seat on the NAC. A candidate proposed for nomination by the Nominating Committee may identify himself or herself as such in his or her materials. Any candidate may send additional mailings to FINRA members at the candidate’s own expense. Except as provided in these By-Laws, FINRA Regulation, the Board, the Nominating Committee, any other committee, the National Adjudicatory Council, and FINRA Regulation staff shall not provide any other administrative support to a candidate for the nomination under this Article or any candidate in a contested election conducted under Article VII of the FINRA By-Laws.
