The following are the requirements for UA NY Intergroup officers:

- Need to have held a service position before.
- Need to be familiar to the group or an elected ISR; additionally, the Chair, Treasurer and World Service Rep need to have been active members of UA NY Intergroup.
- The Treasurer needs to have been solvent 6+ months.
- Need to have worked or be working the steps in UA, and have had at least two action meetings.
When elections are contested, the NY Intergroup has adopted a voting process designed to select officers fairly but expeditiously, without requiring anyone to leave the room during the vote.
- Two volunteers are selected to count the vote.
- Every person present at the Intergroup meeting is eligible to cast a vote.
- Each person is given a ballot slip.
- Each person uses the ballot slip to list all the candidates in order of preference (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.).
- The ballot slips are collected.
- The vote counters independently tally the votes by counting the highest preference of every ballot; after counting, the vote counters compare results, and recount if there is a discrepancy.
- If the person with the most votes has received 51% or more of the vote, they are the winner.
- The person(s) who received the lowest number of votes are eliminated by crossing their names off each ballot.
- Go back to Step 6.
- If there are only two people left on the ballot and both have received 50% of the votes, then the winner is decided by a coin toss.
- One of the two candidates calls heads or tails; the other candidate tosses the coin.
- Everyone should be given the opportunity to see the result before the coin before it is picked up: if the coin does not land clearly visible in an open area, it is tossed again.
- If the position has alternates, then the losing candidates are offered the opportunity to become an alternate in reverse order of elimination from the vote counting; if necessary, any ties are resolved by coin toss as above.
