    Thanks for the post, PAskater. We'll see if the new guy can get along better with the USFS infastructure than the last one.

    Hiring a guy from track and field to direct the USFSA is ALMOST as silly as the ISU hiring speed skating director Cinquanta to also be in charge of ISU Figure Skating.

    Not necessarily. The executive director does not set policy for the organization, he just manages the nuts and bolts of everyday administration. If this guy is a good businessman with a strong background in media relations, I think that is what the position calls for. The president and the standing committees, etc., supply the expertise from the skating side.

    MM-I didn't look at the articles. Executive director is very different than president, which is what I thought it was about. Whoopsy

    He has quite a job description. He has good sports background. He just might do something special for US figure skating. His background in TV may be promising to bring better TV to the fans.
