Who are we?  ASAHPERD membership includes 1250 people from all parts of Alabama.  We are teachers, coaches, trainers, future teachers, exercise scientists, recreation and dance educators.  We have a volunteer Board of Directors who meets four times a year to conduct business.

What do we do?  ASAHPERD provides two conferences each year, one in the Fall and the other in the Spring.  The conferences focus on the professional development needs of the members.  We offer sessions for health, physical education (elementary, middle, high school and adapted), exercise science, dance, athletics, research, JRFH/HFH, recreation as well as post secondary sessions. 

ASAHPERD also produces two journals, two newsletters and two conference flyers for the membership.  ASAHPERD offers recognition for outstanding professionals (teachers of the year, health educators, recreation professionals, dance educators, coaches of the year), outstanding students & major’s clubs, outstanding administrators, outstanding lay leaders & service leaders, and outstanding ethnic minority leaders.  ASAHPERD also awards grants to JRFH/HFH coordinators, as well as local associations. 

ASAHPERD is very active with advocacy efforts in the state.  We have our own legislative consultant who keeps us up-to-date with the happenings in the legislature.  ASAHPERD is involved with advocating for quality programs with the State Department of Education and the State Board of Education.  As you can see, the WHAT that we do for a volunteer group is exceptional!
