Welcome To The Scarsdale Procedure Committee Website



The Procedure Committee is organized each year to conduct the election of candidates to the Citizens Nominating Committee (CNC) and to review, and periodically to propose revisions to the Non-Partisan Resolution, which is one of the governance instruments for the Non-Partisan System in Scarsdale. Its members consist of the ten graduating members of the previous year's CNC, two members of Scarsdale Neighborhood Association Presidents (SNAP), and ten members appointed by the Town and Village Civic Club (TVCC). Each appointed person serves a one-year term but may be reappointed.


The Citizens Nominating Committee consists of thirty elected representatives, six each from the five voting districts [Edgewood, Fox Meadow, Greenacres, Heathcote and Quaker Ridge], and each serving a three-year term. Traditionally, a new class of ten representatives is elected in November at a Village-wide contested election.  Click on "Nominating Committee" above to see the list of current members.

The CNC meets throughout December and January to interview applicants for the Scarsdale Citizens' Non-Partisan Party slate of candidates for Village Mayor, Village Trustees, and Village Justice. The Scarsdale Village Election is held in March.

The CNC Public Organization Meeting was held on Tuesday, December 5, 2017. The first portion of the meeting was open to the public and included presentations by the Mayor, those Village Trustees whose second terms expire in 2018 and a review of the 2017-2018 CNC Rules of Procedure.  Scarsdale Public Television recorded that portion of the meeting.  The program is available for viewing at www.scarsdale publictv.com/video/citizens-nominating-committee-december-5-2017/.  The CNC went into executive session following completion of the public portion of the meeting.

The CNC completed its work in January 2018 and nominated Justin Arest, Lena Crandall and Jane E. Veron as its slate of candidates for Village Trustee positions to be voted on in the Village General Election on March 20, 2018. A public report on the fulfillment of responsibilites by the 2017-2018 CNC is available here.

The Procedure Committee relies on donations from the community for 100% of its revenues, which all go to financing the election of members to the Citizens Nominating Committee and to pay for meeting room rental fees. Give generously now on the "Please Donate" page.
