USPTA National Board election results
September 8, 2011
The results for the United States Professional Tennis Association’s new national board of directors are in after a highly contested election. The new USPTA board of directors will take office later this month at the World Conference on Tennis from Sept. 19-24, at the Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel, Fla., and will serve the association until September 2013. The results are as follow:
Nancy Cox def. Bunny Bruning
Gary Trost def. Bill Mountford
Jeff Hawes def. Mark Savage
Dan Moster def. Chuck Gill
Tom McGraw ran unopposed
Cox, Trost, Hawes, Moster and McGraw will serve as vice presidents, and will join president, Tom Daglis and first vice president, Randy Mattingley. The USPTA bylaws do not allow additional nominations for the positions of president and first vice president, therefore, the choices of the Nominating Committee for those two offices were final prior to the election.
The USPTA board manages the association’s affairs between meetings of the larger USPTA Executive Committee, which includes the board, three past national presidents, and two elected leaders from each of the USPTA’s 17 domestic divisions.
