2020 Annual Conference Recap

December 03, 2020

The 2020 USTA Missouri Valley Annual Conference, hosted December 1-2, was unlike any other conference we’ve had - and was capped off with the 2020 USTA Missouri Valley Highlights video. The USTA Missouri Valley community was connected digitally rather than face-to-face and was a culmination of our centennial celebration in 2020.

 

The conference culminated on night two with the unveiling of the 2020 USTA Missouri Valley Highlights Video. This year-end video looked different than in years past, but it told a wonderful story of how the tennis community rallies together, whether on the court or at home.

 

The conference began at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1 with the Meeting of the Association and Open Board Meeting. The USTA Missouri Valley committees and districts shared their 2020 highlights and key initiatives for 2021 and President Lisa Minihan and Executive Director Mary Buschmann gave their official reports. We passed the gavel from our outgoing President to our incoming President, Jason Mathes, and announced our new board which is listed as follows:

 

President: Jason Mathes

First Vice President: Steve Henry

Vice President: Rich Slivocka

Vice President: Bill Towler

Secretary:  Chris Carey

Treasurer: Beth Causey

Delegate: Lisa Minihan

 

The conference continued on Wednesday, December 2 at 6:00 p.m., with the Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Celebration emceed by Past President Scott Hanover.


The event kicked off with a look back at the section’s 100 years of tennis history

 

Dan AptedJane Hines and Kevin Nebergall were proudly inducted into the USTA Missouri Valley Hall of Fame. Congratulations to these three for this incredible tennis accomplishment!

 

A highlight of the event was when the 30 USTA Missouri Valley 2020 Award Winners were recognized during the program.

 

USTA Missouri Valley is grateful for all of those who’ve supported the section through the strangest year yet and looks forward to what 2021 has in store.
