Middle States Volunteers
The success of our USTA Middle States organization — whose mission is to promote and develop the growth of tennis — is dependent on volunteers sharing their passion for tennis with others.
There are a variety of ways people of all ages and backgrounds can become involved, beginning at the local and community level through to the section level. Tennis experience is not necessarily required to volunteer at some levels.
Our Volunteer Leadership in USTA Middle States consists of our Board of Directors, six District Councils and Section Committees that serves a two-year term. The next term will run from January 2023 through December 2024.
BOARD of DIRECTORS
The business and affairs of the Corporation are managed by its Board of Directors which has full executive and administrative authority and sees that the general provisions are complied with. The Board of Directors is composed of officers, a Section Delegate, a Delegate for each district and Directors at Large as well as up to two positions appointed by the President.
The six District Councils are administrative units of USTA Middle States and are not separate entities. The geographic area of each district was determined upon the ratification of the By-Laws. The volunteers who serve on a district council perform a wide range of functions including assisting in developing programs for junior and adult players, identifying members of the tennis community for awards, recruiting additional volunteers and helping to create marketing campaigns.
The Board of Directors has adopted a number of committees to assist in the affairs of business within specific areas. This may include Adult Competition, Junior Competition, Leadership Development, Audit, etc. Committees are made up of volunteers who serve a two-year term.
GET INVOLVED - PROGRAM VOLUNTEERS
The success of our organization is dependent on volunteers giving their time and sharing their passion for tennis with others whether it is serving on a committee, helping at a tournament, assisting at special events, initiating a program in your community, and more!
There are a variety of ways people of all ages and backgrounds can get involved with USTA Middle States, helping at local tennis and community events. Tennis experience is not required to volunteer at these events because there is something for everyone! We can help you get connected.
This handbook is a reference and should answer many questions about the USTA, the Middle States Section and our six Districts. We hope it will help make your participation an enjoyable and rewarding experience
