Conference Highlight 
New to the 2019 PATH Intl. Conference -- Fireside Chats

Looking for Historical Video Clips!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of PATH Intl., we would LOVE to see any old videos you might have that showcase a look back at the past of EAAT, your center, participants and PATH Intl. Maybe open up that dusty old file cabinet in the back of a center closet (you know, the one you look at once a year and think, "I'm going to look in there some day when I'm not so busy!") to see if you might just have something. We'll take digital clips, an old VHS, whatever you might care to share. If these treasures do exist, it is our hope to compile and edit them into something wonderful for us all to enjoy as we celebrate the past and envision the future of the organization and you! Questions/Ideas? Please contact Kaye Marks.
