Characteristics of Successful Candidates

TIA Nominating Committee decisions are based on many factors. The Committee will be looking for candidates who can help advance the TIA's mission of promoting the growth of tennis and the economic vitality of the industry. This includes helping to shape the goals and priorities of the TIA and the industry, including increasing tennis participation and frequent play, increasing awareness and advocacy for tennis, and committing to a unified approach to the industry under one brand - TENNIS.
