The PAA is ending 2017 with a significant transition.
After serving over a decade as President, Ernie Tye has stepped down from his leadership role and passed the baton on to long-serving PAA board member, Katrin Wegener.
Ernie will stay on as a board member to mentor Katrin during this transition period and to help Pedorthics progress to its next phase in Australia.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ernie for the invaluable work he has done for our profession. The immeasurable amount of time he has taken away from his personal and business life for the benefit of Pedorthics will never be forgotten.
We'd also like to congratulate Katrin and wish her the best of luck in her new role as President of the PAA.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of our followers! See you in 2018! ... See MoreSee Less
