The Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH Intl.) is constantly seeking to expand and improve its programs and membership, which it has done with astonishing success over the past 40 years. Today, PATH Intl. boasts thousands of members, hundreds of volunteers, the best standards in the industry and several different EAAT disciplines and certification levels. Still, PATH Intl. continues to seek newer and better ways to practice and promote EAAT. Click below to read the PATH Intl. Strategic Plan updates.

PATH Intl. Strategic Plan Updates

December 2014

When the current PATH Intl. strategic plan was rolled out in the fall of 2014, the PATH Intl. Board of Trustees and Staff became energized to begin implementing the plan that was created from association member, stakeholder, board and staff feedback. As a result, the staff and volunteers rolled up their sleeves and dived right in to accomplish the goals set forth. A year into the three-to-five year plan, the association is pleased to communicate that many tasks have been completed and even more are well in the works.

One important update we’d like to highlight is the language used for the goals and objectives was revisited by the board and staff and modified slightly to include clearer, measurable purpose for each. There was no change to any of the original intent; however, the improved content is more concise and better defined. To view the new language, download the updated Strategic Plan.
