USTA Checklist for New Volunteers

May 25, 2008 12:04 PM


A volunteer’s first experience at the national level of the USTA can be overwhelming. Some new volunteers complain that they didn’t do anything and had difficulty getting involved. Invariably the most active committee members are those who understand the USTA structure well enough that they know what they are doing and what they need to do. We hope the following checklist will help you with that process. To be effective, a volunteer should become familiar with the:

Mission and Values of the committees with which they will be involved;
Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the committees;
Name and contact information for the committee chairperson, staff liaison and for other committee members;
Their responsibilities to the committee;
Dates for meetings and other relevant events;
Roles and responsibilities for: a) volunteers, b) staff, c) officers (Board of Directors) and d) sections;
USTA Yearbook and its contents;
USTA Web site (www.usta.com);
USTA Mission and Values;
USTA organization chart;
USTA Strategic Plan;
USTA history;
USTA national committees and their functions;
USTA operating procedures;
USTA Constitution and Bylaws.

There are many other components that could be added, but if you are knowledgeable about the above, you will be well on your way to being a true asset to the organization.
