Meet your USTA Officers and Directors

Rule Change Proposals
Leading up to the Annual Meeting, there are 13 District Meetings held across the country, at which USTA members can meet with their local Directors, vote on rule change proposals and discuss USTA matters. The results from each District aide the Board of Directors in deciding whether to pass a rule change proposal by knowing how their constituents feel about each rule change presented.

Any current USTA member can submit a rule change proposal. The form is due at the end of August each year and can be found here.
