Thank you for taking the time to read and perhaps, comment on the thoughts that I will be committing to this Web Log (i.e., Blog). My hope is to provide a topic for your thoughtful consideration several times a week. However, before I begin with the posts, I’d like to introduce myself to you.
My name is D.A. (David Anthony) Abrams, and I have the pleasure of serving as the Executive Director of the United States Tennis Association’s Eastern Section, which covers New York, northeastern New Jersey, and Greenwich, CT. The mission of the Association is to promote and develop the growth of tennis.
In addition to being a certified member of the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), and the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), I am a Certified Association Executive (CAE). I am very passionate about the development and promotion of tennis, as well as the leadership aspects of association management. And, I’m delighted to volunteer my time to what I believe to be a great cause (i.e., finding a cure for Alzheimer’s).
In my down time, I love spending time with my family and friends, reading (just about anything), learning about different cultures through travel, going to the gym (and yes, working out while I’m there), listening to music (almost all genres) and last but not least, relaxing.
Therefore, you can expect to find posts to my Blog on a variety of topics, including tennis, association management, Alzheimer’s, family, friends, books, travel, fitness, music, and yes, relaxing. I hope that you find the posts interesting, as well as provocative enough to participate in the online dialogue.
