After a month of voting, the 2004 NYRA Election has come to a close. At the General Meeting on Saturday, August 14 in New York City, NYRA members received a copy of the Annual Report, and heard the report delivered by President Alex Koroknay-Palicz. Great discussion was sparked by the individuals in attendence regarding the year just past and the year to come. It was agreed 2005 promises to be NYRA’s best year yet. After a year of internal difficulties, the theme of the meeting was one of renewal, and to symbolize this was held across the street from the World Trade Center site. The meeting was in the Winter Garden, the first building to be fully restored after the attack on 9/11. Also at the meeting the final votes were cast in the 2004 Board election and the final tally was made. With 38 votes cast out of a potential 65 the turnout rate was lower than last year, but many more total votes were made. The 2004-2005 Board of Directors include Scott Davidson, Rich Jahn, and Alex Koroknay-Palicz who were reelected for another term, and newcomers Jackie Fuller, Robert Reynolds, Kevin Keenan, Scarlett Swerdlow, Keith Mandell, and Arpan Patel.
