IISA NAMES NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
OCTOBER 14, 1998 PALM SPRINGS, CA---
At its annual planning meeting, held in Palm Springs, CA Wednesday,
October
14th, 1998, the International Inline Skating Association named Kalinda

one of
the "Magnificent 17" women in the Inline skating industry.  Mathis also
produced the IISAs Gear Up! Take a Lesson safety campaign which was
awarded
by the Consumer Products Safety Commission in 1994.

With the full confidence of the Board, the Association agreed, under
Mathis
leadership, to reaffirm its commitment and financial support of the 7
year old
industry association.

The Association will focus on consumer awareness and government
relations
while also creating opportunity for other constituencies such as the
National
Skate Patrol and the Instructor Certification Program to have a strong
voice
in the Association.  The group will also be expanding the membership
base.

charged
Mathis with charting the Association's future during industry
reconsolidation.

How about NSP(National Skate Patrol), or
CORA(California Outdoor Rollerskating Association) or
other grassroots representative bodies?
Think globally, act locally.
