Todd Boss Terry Rogers
Two seats were available in this election cycle, and the communication process began In October 2020 with announcements on the USA Racquetball website and social media plus in an email to members outlining the process, requirements, and deadlines. The Election Committee, consisting of five Board members (including two athlete representatives) and two non-Board members, selected four candidates who were subsequently approved by the USAR Board of Directors. General membership voting commenced March 1, 2021, and concluded March 31, 2021. Todd and Terry will be re-installed as Board members at the upcoming Annual Board of Directors Meeting and will each serve three-year terms concluding in 2024.
In their October statements of interest, each articulated their decision to throw their hats into the ring:
“The year 2020 has been a challenge for the sport, and for the world thanks to Covid-19. I believe Racquetball is about to enter the most critical phase it has ever faced as a sport. We need ideas and leadership, and I’d like to be a part of it.”
-- Todd Boss
“I am, and have been, deeply involved in the sport of racquetball at every level for 25+ years. My mental, physical, and social involvement is boundless, as is my passion. Above all, I have a desire to continue to help grow the sport in this tumultuous time. The future relies on how we pay attention to the players of tomorrow, today.”
-- Terry Rogers
USA Racquetball's gratitude goes to Todd and Terry on their willingness to support USA Racquetball and their dedication to the sport and its players.
