USTA national committee volunteers serve a two-year term on one or more national committees. The current term runs from January 2017 through December 2018.
The council/committee structure is not necessarily identical from term to term, but there are roughly 40 committees, ranging from Tennis Rules & Regulations to Junior Competition to Sport Science.
Individuals may apply for a committee appointment using the USTA National Volunteer Application. Traditionally, each USTA section makes endorsements to the USTA president for appointments. It is not required to be a USTA section or district volunteer prior to serving on a national committee, though USTA membership is mandatory; however, many national volunteers have participated in their local communities in some way before serving at the national level.
Individuals who wish to serve on a national committee must submit a USTA National Volunteer Application, which will be available closer to the next appointment process. The Advisory Group on Committees then works with the incoming USTA president to facilitate the committee appointment process.
The next selections will be finalized in December 2018, prior to the start of the new term in January 2019.
