WHAT IS PATH?
PATH is an all-encompassing, non-partisan corporation known as the Professional Association of Travel Hosts, Inc. PATH's members are comprised of Host Agencies only.
PATH is governed by its Executive Committee, elected by its Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is comprised of owners and executives of Travel Host Agencies.
The purposes of PATH are as follows:
To establish a Code of Ethics and Performance Standards for Host Agencies
To bring educational and training opportunities to its members and their Affiliated Travel Agents
To further communications between the Host Agency member, its Affiliates and Travel Suppliers. Please refer to our Bylaws for more information concerning our goals and missions.
The Travel Host Agency has increased significantly in recent years bringing with them an array of business models that has confused what the Host Agency is about. This has resulted in the need of a professional society of Host Agencies that want to establish operating standards with strict enforcement among its members.
The Travel Supplier presently has access to Home-Based Travel Agents through Home-Based Travel Agent membership associations who represent thousands of Home-Based Travel Agents. Host Agencies with their Affiliate Home-Based Travel Agents account for the other half of the entire Home-Based Travel Agent market. These Affiliates are probably the most elusive for the Travel Suppliers.
We look forward to you joining PATH.
