Our "leagues" are broken up over three different LLCs (yes, the legal definition of Limited Liability Corporations....and having nothing "official" to do with USTA)...and none of their websites list any specific info on who the Committee members are.

Shame on them, I say. Transparency is the name of the game. We're not talking National Security here. It's sad that reality pushes them towards secrecy but really? Some Districts/Sections are very upfront about their grievances and sanctions. I wish they all were. Maybe it'd knock down some of this nonsense that's bandied about.

Again, I'll say, I wish all the inner workings of USTA were more open.

oooh secret grievance committees- could I be put on double secret probation? Well I guess it makes sense since the stakes of recreational tennis are so high.
