Region Rep Nominations -- Regions 2, 4, 6, 8, 10

Nominations are due by June 1st. Submit the nomination form to your region representative. Your region representative contact information can be found on the region web page.

Also, don't forget to pay close attention to your region's community connections page; your region representatives will be calling for nominations and posting important information during the process.

Use your voice, today!
Why I Belong 
During these stressful times and difficult circumstances, it's important to keep positive. We asked members at region conferences and elsewhere to share why they belong to PATH Intl. 
"I belong to PATH Intl. because I love to teach and  laugh with the riders, and I believe in the PATH Intl. mission.  I'm proud to say I'm a PATH Intl. Instructor "
Beth Brock   
Thank you, Beth!
