Dear UFZA Members,

It’s been a joy to watch the UFZA grow from it’s inception in 2014. You have been an important part of that growth! Congratulations! We hope you’ve been to the website and watched the new addition of videos from our 2014 Conference round tables, and read the wonderful new addition of educational articles from our Training Program owners the past few months… all can be found on our home page.

Soon you will be able to submit your own articles to the Board of Directors for review to be considered for publication on our website.

We as a Board have been working tirelessly to refine the Bylaws of the Association. Soon you will be invited to review them, offer suggestions and vote on them. Watch for an email with the link to make your voice heard.

Soon also you will be invited to nominate new UFZA Board Members and then vote on them. One of the offices you will be voting on is Chairman Elect. This person will take over the office of Chairman after being under the tutelage of the present Chairman and learning the ins and outs of the Association. The UFZA is moving forward!

My time as your Chairman is at an end. I have stepped down. Kathy Duvall, founder and co-owner of the Academy of Foot Zone Therapy has kindly accepted and received the vote of the Board to return to the Board of Directors to fulfill one year as Chairman and train the Chairman-Elect whom you will soon be electing. She is an amazingly gifted woman, honest and hard-working. Please support her in her efforts to serve you as you have me! Thank you!

We pray for your success and prosperity! We are working to bring unity, cooperation, kindness, education and understanding to the Foot Zone community. If there are any suggestions you have of things the UFZA could do to help you or our Industry in any way, please feel free to contact us at . It has been a joy to serve you the past 4 years! I encourage you to give of your time and talents to help build our profession. It will give you a sense of satisfaction that will last your whole life through!

God Bless & Prosper you!

Trudy Thurgood
Past Chairman of the UFZA
