The Raleigh Tennis Association is always seeking great local talent to join our Board of Directors. The Board of Directors manages the association. It makes all important decisions for the organization, including establishment of the annual budget and approval of capital projects.
If elected to the Board of Directors, you are expected to attend the Board meetings (we have 6 per year). Our bylaws require a simple majority of voting Board members to constitute a quorum, and they may vote in person or by proxy. We need to be certain we can achieve a quorum at each Board meeting or no vote can be called until the next meeting.
RTA does recommend that our Board members also volunteer to serve on one or more committees. The committees are vital to our association and undertake both operational and project-related activities.
The Board of Directors is comprised of 10 elected members, including the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Terms are two years and are volunteer positions.
CLICK HERE to apply for a RTA Board Member position. If board beats are not available, we will contact you and keep you on the roster to contact when one becomes available.
We ask that committee members commit to a one-year term, attend approximately one meeting per month (currently all meetings are virtual), and complete committee tasks (typically via email). Board members are asked to commit to a two-year term, attend virtual board meetings every other month (January, March, May, July, September), sit on at least one committee, and volunteer to help at events and activities. The RTA Board is currently full. When the RTA Board application process reopens the application link will be posted here.
