TUITION POLICY CHANGES GO INTO EFFECT ON DECEMBER 8
Receive significant discounts by registering for classes early!

This message is to make you aware of upcoming changes to the tuition structure for Zero Balancing classes. As many of you know we have not raised tuition in many years. We believe it is vital for the continuing growth and success of Zero Balancing to make a change at this time.

We are excited to present a simplified and unified structure for tuition. All fees apply to both certified and non-certified students. We have also implemented "user-friendly" fees for those who want to repeat a class.

The new pricing structure for ZB classes will be implemented on Monday, December 8, 2014. The last day to register at the old prices will be Sunday, December 7, 2014. This change will not affect anyone who has already signed up or who signs up for any class on the schedule - including 2015 classes - before December 7.

The fee structure is based on course length and unifies pricing by applying to all classes, whether Core or Advanced ZB.

One change to the fee structure is to provide savings by signing up early. There will be significant costs savings by planning ahead and registering early. Students who take advantage of the Super Savings prices (registering more than 60 days before the start of class) will pay nearly the same amount as current tuition rates.

You will also see the fees for repeating classes. Many of you already know the benefits of repeating a ZB class, where depth and nuance can come into play. Our goal is to make repeating a class an affordable option. The fees apply to both certified and non-certified students.
The following fee structure will be for all courses, whether Core ZB or Advanced. Repeat fees apply to both certified and non-certified students.

* Full price if registering less than 30 days before the start of a 3 or 4 day class. (60 days for 1 or 2 day class)
* Early registration price if registering between 30 and 60 days before the start of class.
* Super Savings price if registering more than 60 days before the start of class.

REFUND POLICY

If, for any reason, a Zero Balancing instructor elects to cancel a class, students will receive a full refund of the tuition.

Cancellations made 30 or more calendar days prior to the first day of class will be fully refunded, or funds may be transferred to another class.

If a student elects to withdraw less than 30 days prior to the first day of class, they will receive a full refund, minus a $100 administrative fee.

If a student elects to transfer to another ZB class less than 15 days prior to the first day of class, they will receive a full refund, minus a $100 administrative fee.

Please note: Tuition Policy (including discounts for repeating classes) and Refund Policy may vary for residential classes, classes sponsored by schools or other educational organizations (Esalen, etc.), classes that are privately sponsored, and classes that are specialized or limited in the number of participants. The ZBHA or faculty reserve the right to limit the number of repeat students in any given class.

BIOREGIONAL INITIATIVE
An Update from Mary Murphy, retiring Co-Chair ZBHA Board

A lot has changed in our organization since the Bioregional committees were first conceived many years ago. We are recognizing that even though many of the Bioregional committees have been inactive, local and regional ZB events are still happily being held.

As most of you know, in 2006 the Bioregional Initiative was launched to engender more grassroots activities within the ZB communities and particularly to include practitioners in leadership roles. The mission of this initiative has been realized in many ways over these last seven years and not only under the auspices of local bioregional committees but also through the efforts of centers of ZB activities arising due to practitioner enthusiasm and interest. It is now common for practitioners and faculty to provide community service or sponsor events for the ZB or the wider community. The practitioner community has been empowered in a number of ways to take the helm of various activities that relate to the original mission of the Bioregional initiative. The new resources on our national website for practitioners in our member center, the Zero Balancing Awareness Month promotions, regional conferences, and joint projects of service and research are all examples of ongoing activities that are carrying out the original ideas of the Bioregional committees.

We are recommending that the formal Bioregional committees, some of which have been very active and some which have been quieter, be dissolved, as new circles of interest have naturally evolved and we have a greater national marketing effort that is undertaking many of the ideas done locally. This takes out the looseness in the existing state of the committees and provides a clean, clear disconnect which honors what is actually happening. The monies donated to the Bioregions are still available on a provisional basis for the next six months and then will be joined with the overall Marketing Fund. In this way, the future events and community service ideas in your bioregion which may need some financial assistance to happen will be supported whenever possible.

We encourage all ZBHA members to be especially active in their local and regional ZB communities with their fellow practitioners to grow ZB in myriad ways of service and learning. A great way to stay connected is by participating in a ZB study group. We are very grateful to all the ZBers who have served on these committees and transformed our way of growing our ZB communities locally and regionally. I would like to especially thank those who served as chairs, or co-chairs of their local committees and Valarie McGettigan and Margaret Nelson who acted as Bioregional Coordinators over these last several years.

With gratitude and highest regards,
Mary Murphy, retiring Co-Chair ZBHA Board
