Governance

The non-profit Rancho Penasquitos Tennis Association was incorporated and approved by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a 501(c)(4) exempt organization in 1986 and subsequently requested and was approved by the IRS and the State of California to change its status to a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization effective as of 2012. Board members are elected by the general membership each year for staggered two year terms. Roughly half of the board is elected each year so that terms overlap for continuity. Currently, the association Bylaws require that board members are eligible for two consecutive two year terms and must “term-out” the following year before again becoming eligible for board membership. An election committee formed by the Board is constituted each year to manage the election and to announce the results at the Annual Meeting which is held in May each year at the club.

Monthly board meetings are held from 6:30-8 PM on the third Monday of each month (except when holidays or other factors necessitate schedule changes and typically no meeting is held in December). Officers, elected by the Board at the beginning of each board term, include: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Membership Director. These roles entail additional time commitments. Board members also serve on committees or in club volunteer roles (tournaments, league coordination, fundraising, maintenance, etc.).
