IMS Obtains Global Board Seat & Industry Honors At IRTA�s Barter Conference

International Monetary Systems (OTCBB:INLM) a worldwide leader in business-to-business barter services, announced that its CEO, Don Mardak, has been elected for a three-year term to the Global Board of Directors of the International Reciprocal Trade Association (IRTA). The IRTA annual meeting of its members was held last week in Orlando, Florida.

IRTA Executive Director Ron Whitney pointed out, �IMS is one of the premier modern trade and barter companies in the world. IRTA is delighted to be able to benefit from Don Mardak's enormous industry expertise and wisdom. He will undoubtedly play a key role in helping IRTA achieve its many ambitious initiatives.�

�I am honored to serve on this board,� Mardak asserted, �along with representatives of the international barter industry from North America, Europe, and Asia. Together we can provide a complementary currency that will enhance the economies of each of our countries in these very difficult times.�

In addition to addressing industry issues, IRTA�s annual conference also serves as an educational forum that culminates with industry recognition and awards. IMS was awarded Most Educational Video Production for their online video that explains how modern barter works through their system.

This is the first time that a barter company was recognized by the IRTA for contributions made through web-based video productions. The video can be viewed on the company�s web site. Additional recognition and award was given to Kim Strabley, IMS� travel and reciprocal accounts manager, for contributions to IRTA�s Universal Currency (UC) system. The UC is a global network through which IRTA members can seamlessly trade with each other using a widely accepted global barter currency.
