Fall Conference & Awards Reception


November 19 & 20, 2020

CTAHPERD Virtual Fall Conference 


Conference planning Chair Rob Silliman is seeking more proposals especially for all areas in health, secondary physical education, recreation, dance, social emotional learning, equity, diversity and inclusion that reflect your day to day work with students and teachers. Your session will inspire others and strengthen the health and physical education profession here in Connecticut. Help shape our main professional development event of the year! If you are willing to pre-record a session for our virtual conference we are still accepting submissions.

Share your talents, effective teaching strategies, and unique skills with your colleagues in the areas of health and wellness, physical education, dance, research and sport.
