What do you feel your contribution to the board is?

I am a Growth Committee Member and help interested parties learn how to start public facilities, which includes learning how to deal with government bodies for zoning and construction permits; where and how to purchase new or used courts, and how to create a paddle program to generate membership and league play.

As far as Platform Tennis Magazine, I am in charge of overseeing the production schedule and that it is synchronized with the strategy and mission of the APTA— governing the sport and growing the sport.
