 ATA SENIOR VP BATTS TO HEAD FINANCIAL TRADE GROUP;
 JOHN COLLINS NAMED AS SUCCESSOR
 WASHINGTON, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Lana Batts, senior vice president of government affairs for the American Trucking Associations (ATA), is leaving ATA to become president and CEO of American Financial Services Association (AFSA), according to Thomas J. Donohue, ATA president and CEO.
 Batts, who has been with ATA for nearly 19 years, will take the helm at AFSA Oct. 1. AFSA is the national trade association for financial firms that provide consumer credit to individuals and small businesses.
 Donohue named John Collins, ATA vice president and general counsel, as her successor.
 "It is truly with mixed emotions that I announce Lana's departure from ATA," Donohue said. "She has been a strong and powerful advocate for the trucking industry her entire life. We are grateful to Lana for her many years of dedicated service to ATA, and we will miss her leadership, enthusiasm and tenacity.
 "But to her credit, they made her an offer she couldn't refuse."
 As the newly named senior vice president of government affairs, Collins will handle state and federal government issues, including safety and productivity, the environment, taxation and labor.
 "John has been active and invaluable player on ATA's team for the last five years," Donohue said. "We are fortunate to have someone with John's experience and industry-wide respect to assume this vital position."
 Before coming to the ATA, Collins was assistant general counsel for the Department of Transportation from 1981 to 1986. In addition to managing DOT's legislative program, Collins was instrumental in the development of the commercial driver's license (CDL) legislation.
 Collins is a member of the bar of the U.S. Supreme Court and the state of Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia. He was named to serve on the Federal Highway Administration's Motor Carrier Advisory Committee by Secretary Card July 17.
 Prior to joining the ATA as a research analyst in 1973, Batts was an instructor in American history at the University of the Philippines in Manila. She is an honors graduate of the University of Montana and holds a master's degree from the University of Miami, Fla.
