2020 Member Council Nominations

We are now taking nominations for members who wish to serve on the 2020 NYSHEX Member Council. The Member Council is an integral part of NYSHEX that allows Members to actively participate in the decision making process of the Exchange.

  • 1000 common stock options subject to approval by the Board of Directors for New York Shipping Exchange, Inc.
  • Annual invitation to New York to meet with the NYSHEX team. 

To ensure that the Member Council is serving NYSHEX to the best of its abilities, Council Members are required to actively participate with NYSHEX by trading on the Exchange and providing feedback and suggestions to the NYSHEX team.

  • Council Members must enter into at least one accepted contract per month on NYSHEX.
