IPATA Regional Meetings
The regional meetings provide an opportunity to unite IPATA members in each region around a common set of goals and values, while fostering a shared understanding of how the parties can work together as a team towards the betterment of the pet shipping industry. After a regional meeting is held a summary of the meeting and attendee list will be posted in the IPATA Members Only Section under the Regions once it is received from the Regional Director.
