Pathways – It’s here!!
A journey of possibilities and achievements
Pathways is the new Toastmasters International Education Program. Pathways features interactive content, engaging videos, skill-building activities and projects, and powerful tools for tracking your progress and growth.
Members returning to Toastmasters can continue in the Traditional program, go into Pathways or do both whether their dues have lapsed for years or days according to Toastmasters International Pathways Q&A below.
Question #113 – Returning Members
Q: If a member reinstates after the Pathways rollout, during the two-year transition period, can that person complete the CC manual that he or she started or will he or she automatically get put on Pathways?
A: The two-year transition period was designed specifically for members to complete awards they have already started working toward in the traditional program. This applies to existing members and those who reinstate after the rollout of Pathways.
