2022 marks the 35th year of service for TRAV. Our dedicated Board members, member centers, and individual members have done an incredible job of expanding the reach of the equine-assisted services world, while strengthening our programs and services, despite the many challenges faced by everyone. Our program highlights are numerous this year, and we look forward to highlighting them at this year’s Annual Meeting.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the continued restrictions in place around travel, social distancing, and other factors yet to be determined for the next few months, the TRAV Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to host the 2022 Annual Meeting virtually again.
Notice is hereby given that the TRAV Annual Meeting will be held in conjunction with an educational workshop on Saturday, February 19, 2022. The meeting will be held virtually through Zoom and the link details will be shared upon registration.
The purpose of this annual meeting is to:
- Act on any business which may properly come before this meeting
