Download as PDF 12394 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 44 / Monday, March 7, 2011 / Notices would also make several changes to the election process to make it more streamlined and efficient, including centralizing it within the Corporate Secretary’s office, and diminishing the need for FINRA District office effort. FINRA proposes to permit the Corporate Secretary to develop published procedures for administrative support provided to candidates, which would allow the Secretary’s administrative experience with other FINRA elections to inform these procedures.51 The proposed rule change also would modify the ballot preparation to recognize this centralization within the Corporate Secretary’s office and the elimination of the District Nomination Committees.52 In addition, the proposed rule change would make the vote qualification lists in current Section 8.26 tailored to firm size classification and the applicable list available upon request to a candidate based on the size of the firm with which he or she is associated, since many more candidates are foreseen under the new process, and FINRA anticipates that not all of them would likely need or seek these lists.53 The proposed rule change would simplify the tabulation of ballots by the Independent Agent by centralizing it under the Corporate Secretary.54 In addition, it would recognize that election results would be determined based on those firms in particular firm size classifications.55 Finally, it would make certain other administrative changes, such as revising the By-Laws to reflect the current address of FINRA Regulation’s registered office 56 and eliminating the obsolete reference to the Canal Zone in District No. 7.57 As noted in Item 2 of this filing, the effective date of the proposed rule change will be the date of Commission approval. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES 2.
