In a letter to members issued this week, the Toy Industry Association (TIA) announced that its Annual Business Meeting will convene at 8 a.m. on February 12 in room 1E19 of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Held in conjunction with the American International Toy Fair, the one-hour meeting will include reports of the chairman, president, and secretary/treasurer; the election of new Board members; and other such matters as may regularly be brought before the membership.

A vote to fill three open seats on the Association’s Board of Directors will be taken during the meeting. Additional nominations for full-term directors may be made in writing, signed by not less than 10 percent of the membership of the Association, and submitted to the president at least 30 days before the Annual Meeting (January 14).

The meeting is open to all stakeholders of the toy industry–both members and non-members. Questions concerning the Annual Meeting can be directed to the office of TIA President Carter Keithley (212) 675-1141.
