The Administrative Committee is responsible for conducting the election of members to the SBNC. Each year, members of the Administrative Committee seek candidates, and invite the community to suggest candidates, for the SNBC to ensure that there are at least two candidates for each vacancy on the SBNC. The Administrative Committee prepares and mails a brochure containing the biographies of the candidates for the SBNC, along with any proposed changes to the Resolution, to every household in Scarsdale and posts the information online on the SBNC website http://www.scarsdalesbnc.com. The Administrative Committee conducts the election of the candidates for the SBNC and notifies all candidates of the results.
The costs of the mailing of the candidate brochure and the administrative expenses of the Administrative Committee as well as the SBNC are financed solely by contributions from the community. The Administrative Committee is responsible for raising funds to cover such costs and to provide sufficient funds for the Administrative Committee in the succeeding year to begin its work.
The Administrative Committee is comprised of the 10 voting members of the SBNC whose terms are expiring at the next SBNC election, 3 members appointed by the TVCC, 3 members appointed by SNAP, and 3 members appointed from the community at large by the chair of the Administrative Committee in consultation with the entire committee. The appointed members serve 3-year staggered terms whereas all others serve for one SBNC election cycle. The previous year’s Administrative Committee vice chair succeeds to the position of chair and a new vice chair is elected by the Joint Committee by not later than April 30. Both the chair and the vice chair shall be impartial and not entitled to vote.
