The United States Professional Tennis Association is a nondiscriminatory organization that is managed democratically by its members. It is divided into 17 U.S. divisions comprising all 50 states, plus the International Division, Southeast Asia Division and the Japan Professional Tennis Association.
The national Executive Committee, consisting of two elected officers from each of the 17 U.S. divisions, the last three immediate past presidents, plus an eight-member national Board of Directors, legislates all policy matters and meets twice a year. The Board of Directors handles the affairs of the Association between meetings of the Executive Committee. It is comprised of the national president, the first vice president, four vice presidents, the secretary-treasurer and the immediate past president. Also on the board as nonvoting members are the CEO and the general counsel. The general counsel advises the board and Executive Committee on all legal matters, and the CEO manages the daily administration of USPTA from the World Headquarters.
Committees are appointed at both national and divisional levels that form the policies and directions for activities such as awards, testing, education and tournaments.
