NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA) voted in its board of directors for 2016 on December 3 further cementing the precedent-setting overhaul of its governance and leadership, which began in 2014.
This was only the second year in the 78-year existence of NYSSA that more than one Society member could be nominated as a candidate for a single seat on the board.
The newly implemented electoral process emerged in the fall of 2014 amid a broader policy change designed to better accommodate the nearly 9,000 New York-area finance professionals that comprise the membership of NYSSA.
“The increase in engagement and an improvement in relevant content is a direct result of the governance changes implemented in 2014,” explained Daniel Dagen, CFA, the CEO of NYSSA.
On the strength of its largest voter turnout since 2011, NYSSA elected the following eligible members to its board of directors:
• Treasurer – Antonella Puca, CFA, CIPM, CPA (three-year term through December 2018)
• Director-at-Large – Christopher Cutler, CFA (three-year term through December 2018)
• Director-at-Large – Robert Discolo, CFA, CAIA, CPA (three-year term through December 2018)
• Director-at-Large – Patrick Holert, CFA, CAIA (three-year term through December 2018)
• Director-at-Large – Sandra LaBaugh, CFA (three-year term through December 2018)
“NYSSA and the entire CFA Institute can be incredibly pleased with the degree of commitment to NYSSA demonstrated by each 2015 candidate,” said Dagen. “Their dedication and talent truly make NYSSA one of the most member-centric, forward-thinking local Societies of CFA Institute.”
