Our registrar, Kathy Petersen, has been working very hard to make sure our members have all the information they need to register, transfer, update, etc. your miniature zebus.  The IMZA has now added an additional form entitled, "Reclassification from Appearance Certified to IMZA Foundation Pure"  on the on-line registration page, as well as on the page for mail-ins (click here).  If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Petersen at imzainfo@gmail.com .  Thanks to all members for your help in keeping paperwork up to date!
