Dear Colleagues and Friends:
Purposeful movement. From the moment we are born, we strive to direct our own movement in order to fulfill our needs. We begin with ordinary opportunities that allow us to investigate our environment. As we grow and age, our world expands until we are fully included in our community. How conveniently and safely we are able to get where we need to go has a major effect on our quality of life. The field of travel training emerged to support the ability for all to explore their world.
Since the inception of the Association of Travel Instruction, 17 years ago, we have embraced supporting those who provide individuals with the necessary skills to safely explore their world. With your continued engagement we can make this association stronger and more able to accommodate your professional needs.
I am humbled by the depth of commitment individuals in our field have in supporting this endeavor. I look forward to working with our community of travel trainers, instructors, and stakeholders to include opportunities for engagement, collaboration and professional development to advance our field into a quantifiable profession.
Thank you for doing what you do. Please feel free to reach out to me or other board members with ways to better serve you.
ATI Board President
