This form must be filed with the NYSWYSA State Office not later than twenty days prior to the earliest permitted date of mailing of the notice of the meeting of the membership for which purpose the delegate has been appointed. Each such listing of qualified delegates shall remain in effect until the designating member has filed a superseding notice.
