Voting

All qualified NYTHA members may participate in electing NYTHA's Board of Directors. Elections are held every three years. The process for the next election will begin in June 2014, with the vote set for October 2014. The new Board will be instituted in November 2014.

There are three options for eligible members who would like to be included on the ballot for the NYTHA Board.

  1. Submit your nomination to the NYTHA Nominating Committee, which is comprised of Jim Gallagher, Mark Hennig and Jack Shelley.
  2. A General Nomination Meeting will be held during the Saratoga meeting. If any member wishes to run for the Board, a nomination can be made from the floor during that meeting, if the member consents in writing to the nomination. The nomination has to have two (2) seconds and must be accompanied by a petition signed by at least thirty (30) members of the Association.
  3. For a period of 15 days after the General Nomination Meeting, additional candidates may be nominated by petition signed by at least fifty (50) members in good standings, provided the petition is filed with the NYTHA Nominating Committee during the 15-day period following the General Nominating Meeting and is accompanied by the candidate's affidavit and policy statement, if any.
