WPATH is an international organization which focuses on global issues in transgender health. More local advocacy and policy can often be best accomplished by WPATH-affiliated regional associations. Each PATH has the advantage of WPATH affiliation while being able to focus activity and advocacy on the issues most important to that part of the world.
All US members of WPATH will automatically be members of USPATH. USPATH will be a nonprofit organization and will form when a Board of Directors is elected by the US members of WPATH. Then that board will solidify bylaws, organize committees, and conduct business under the WPATH umbrella.
The members of the USPATH Taskforce along with the newly elected USPATH officers are pleased to invite nominations for the Board of Directors (BOD) of The United States Professional Association for Transgender Health (USPATH). Candidates must be full members of WPATH who reside in the United States.
USPATH becomes a legal entity when elections are held, and the organization is incorporated. A Steering Committee was formed to get the organization off the ground, but the members of the Steering Committee will step down once all the USPATH Board of Directors are in place. The Steering Committee has been hard at work to establish an open election process, criteria for nominations, and newly-drafted bylaws for USPATH, which the new board may choose to adopt as they move forward. Thank you for your participation in creating this new organization!
