I have been a member of the ATC for many years and have participated in many tennis events held by the Club. I'm also a long-term member of the USTA, participating in many of their leagues and tournaments.

I have been a member of the Board for one year. ATC is an incredible place to play tennis, and I'd like to continue to support the Club. The facility and the support from the members are outstanding. The condition of the courts and the high level of use is a testament to the efforts of the members and the Board of Directors.

I am a past member of the Knickerbacker Playground Board of Directors in Troy, including president for eight years, so I am familiar with how volunteer boards operate. Professionally, I am a retired mechanical engineer with 20 years of experience in facilities operation and new construction projects at RPI and eight years as a professional engineering consultant focusing on energy conservation in facilities.


I joined the Club when it re-opened after the COVID shutdown, so I've been a member for over three years. Membership in this amazing Club has been fantastic. I'm passionate about tennis, and the Club has been so much more than just a place to play. The courts are exceptional, but the people are what make it so very special. I've thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many nice folks.

I have worked as a statistician for my professional career, including employment as a quality engineer at IBM in Fishkill, then as a lecturer at SUNY New Paltz in the Business School for about 12 years before becoming a full-time, and now a self-employed statistical consultant. I'm currently semi-retired. I grew up in Plymouth, MA, and went to college at RPI, where I played field hockey and basketball while majoring in Mathematics. In addition to tennis, I'm an avid quilter, and I belong to two quilt guilds and serve on the Board of Directors for Q.U.I.L.T.S. Schenectady. I'm married to Ellen Taussig, and we reside in Voorheesville.


I have been involved with tennis in one way or another for more years than I care to admit. My USTA (United States Tennis Association) roles presently include player and member of the USTA Eastern Grievance Appeals Committee and certified USTA and ITA (Intercollegiate Tennis Association) official.

Professionally, I worked for the State Education Department (SED) for over 35 years. My last position in SED was Assistant Director of Financial Administration.

My ATC Board positions include co-chair of the Maintenance Committee (2 years) and Board Secretary (2 years). If elected, I look forward to the opportunity to work with the other ATC board members and our wonderful volunteers as we strive to continue improving our summer home on the "red dirt."


This past year, we have strengthened our audit and purchasing procedures and receipt of membership dues. I also serve on a team to review ways to improve our future financial position.

Background-wise, I live in Delmar but have launched and led a series of international entrepreneurial ventures for for-profit and non-profit entities in the United States and overseas, including a charter aviation company in Russia over the years. My continued focus will be financial management, accountability, and staff mentoring.


I practiced environmental law for 35 years in New York State. I was proud to serve for many years as Deputy Commissioner, General Counsel, and Executive Deputy Commissioner for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. I also had a private practice in Albany where I represented community groups, municipalities, small businesses, and individuals who often needed guidance navigating multi-tiered and complicated compliance requirements before federal, state, and local agencies. Now that I have retired from law practice, I have devoted more time to tennis. The benefits of playing tennis have been well-documented!!!

The ATC is a unique community that allows players of all levels to enjoy the game. The social interactions offer significant benefits to our community. Continuing on the Board, I will dedicate my efforts to expanding opportunities to more members of the community at large. I was proud to be part of the 15-Love fundraiser held this past summer and hope to strengthen our relationship with that organization. I have enjoyed contributing to the success of the ATC and helping navigate the financial challenges we will face in the years to come.


I have been a member of the Albany Tennis Club for about a decade. I still have a day job in state government relations for MetLife (which, unfortunately, has hindered my work on my backhand and serve!). I came to the Capital District about 30 years ago, moving up here from New York City. I hadn't played much tennis since graduating high school in the early 80s, but I decided to start again once I got up here. I am delighted I did. And one of the best decisions I have ever made was to join the Albany Tennis Club (ATC).

ATC has become my "happy place." I go to the club and forget about everything except having fun playing tennis with friends. While the red clay courts are an absolute treasure, the tennis community at ATC and the people there are even more special.

I have been honored to serve as Vice President and heading several initiatives undertaken this past year. The ATC continues to be the premier tennis facility in the Capital Region but remains the special tennis community that many of its members appreciate.


I am a current third-year member of the ATC Board of Directors. I was active in working on the recent update of the ATC By-Laws and continued with the review of our sales tax issue. I am also a member of the Special Committee on Strategic Planning.

Before retirement, I spent over forty years practicing law in Albany and NYC. During this time, I was also a board member, pro-bono legal advisor, and volunteer with several not-for-profit organizations in the Capital District, NYC, and Boston.

I am a long-time resident of East Greenbush with my spouse, Jeri Eisenberg. I remain an active tennis player and am committed to maintaining and improving the ATC as a wonderful place to gather with friends and play tennis.


I have been a member since 2005 and am now semi-retired after a 40+ year career in law enforcement and higher education administration. I thoroughly enjoy the camaraderie and competition at the clay courts.

2024 will be my third consecutive year on the Board. This past year, I had the privilege of serving as president and working with dedicated and talented Board members and volunteers.

Overall, we had a great season with Larry as our manager. Looking into the future, we must address ATC’s financial position and facilities infrastructure and respond to evolving membership concerns.


This past year was quite challenging for our tennis club.

We overcame irrigation problems, purchased, installed, utilized, painted a much-needed shed, and dealt effectively with typical weather-related issues. Due to the diligence of last year's Board and the loyalty of its members, we ended the 2023 season in fine fashion. There is no reason why we can't continue to have a thriving facility in the future.

There's a need, however, to have continuity on the Board, and I hope to stay on to assist in that endeavor. The ATC has provided me with more than a place to play the sport I enjoy, and I look forward to continue giving back.


Now entering my fifth year of membership at the ATC, I have developed a strong affinity for the Club. I love the spirit of community and the friendly competition that the Club engenders. Some people joke that I live in the Shed at the Club, but it only seems that way because I am such a heavy user of the courts.

As a member of the Board, my primary goal is to ensure the Club's longevity and provide the best possible experience for our members. I bring over forty years of experience in the finance industry and strength in critical thinking as the Board reviews essential matters to keep the Club operating in tip-top shape.
