  S 3. The corporation shall organize by the adoption of by-laws and the

of the trustees of the corporation, not to exceed  the  period  of  five
years,  PROVIDED,  THAT  TRUSTEES  APPOINTED ON OR AFTER JANUARY 1, 2015
SHALL BE APPOINTED FOR A PERIOD OF TWO YEARS, excepting that the  mayor,
comptroller, public advocate and speaker of the city council of the city
of  New  York  and  the president of the borough of Queens, shall at all
times be members of the board ex-officio AND SUCH EX-OFFICIO MEMBERS MAY
DESIGNATE A REPRESENTATIVE TO SERVE EX-OFFICIO IN HIS OR HER PLACE.  The
trustees shall hereafter be  chosen  and  vacancies  occurring  in  such
office  filled by an appointment which shall alternate between the mayor

PROVIDED,  HOWEVER, THAT TRUSTEES MUST BE EITHER A RESIDENT OF QUEENS OR
