You will have access to these people via the Experts section of the new IFA website, the Global Workshops that the IFA is holding internationally, the World Congresses held every three years and the Proceedings, as well as the Journal of Fluency Disorders, to which you will automatically have access as an IFA member.
The International Fluency Association and the community it represents lost a friend and an advocate when Joe Fulcher passed away on 6th October 2017.
Joe served the Stuttering Foundation of America over many years and in many ways. Married to Jane Fraser, President of the SFA, Joe employed his extensive financial and legal knowledge and skills to further the work of the organisation, ensuring the highest standards of governance throughout.
Joe was an engaging and gracious gentleman who cared deeply about the community of children and adults who stutter and he worked tirelessly alongside Jane for thirty years to improve the lives of those who stutter.
The Stuttering Foundation has always been an active supporter of the IFA, sponsoring a post conference workshop at the last World Congress in Lisbon. We value our partnership as we strive for the same goals.
Joe will be deeply missed by so many and we feel privileged to have known and worked alongside him.
The International Fluency Association is a not-for-profit, international, interdisciplinary organization devoted to the understanding and management of fluency disorders, and to the improvement in the quality of life for persons with fluency disorders.
