What We Do. . .
NCAAHPERD provides several enriching opportunities and career resources for members, including:
As advocates of healthier children, we monitor and support progressive reform of health and physical education policy at the state legislature, keep members informed, and provide ways for teachers and the public to get involved.
Awards, Grants, and Scholarships
The community of North Carolina AHPERD professionals support each other in several ways. Each association recognizes excellence each year at the convention. Four types of grants are available for members seeking funding for research or initiatives in the classroom. Scholarships are available for college students preparing for a career in an AHPERD profession.
Collective Progress with Affiliates and Partners
NCAAHPERD is committed to working in collaborative settings with national AHPERD affiliates and partner organizations in North Carolina.
Leadership and Unity
NCAAHPERD has a long history and rich network of leadership and unity. Opportunities for AHPERD professionals and educators of all ages to become leaders are available. In addition, the ability to network with a diverse and talented group is many of our members’ favorite benefit.
Members stay informed and engaged year-round with Headlines, a monthly e-newsletter featuring the latest news, new legislation or changes in health and physical education policy, links to online resources/webinars, and much more.
In addition to an annual state convention, we provide several opportunities to earn Continuing Education Credits (CEU’s), while sharpening skills and learning new ones at several professional development events throughout the year.
NCAAHPERD’s bi-annual, electronic scholarly research publication, The North Carolina Journal, provides members the perfect opportunity for published, peer-reviewed articles.
