Fall Conference & Awards Reception

Wyndham Southbury Hotel, Southbury, CT



Cheers to 100 Years! 

The CT Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance is celebrating its 100th Anniversary. Founded in 1921, the strength of our organization derived from the selfless efforts of leaders, members and volunteers who dedicated their time to enhance the profession. For the past century, many professionals shared their expertise and knowledge by providing workshops, presentations and other professional development activities to ensure best practices in health and physical education. 

It seems only fitting that the theme for the 2021 conference is Journey to Success. The past century, every teacher has brought their own expertise to bring to the table; be it instruction, social emotional learning, relationship building, advocacy, technology, etc. This year our conference will allow for the expansion and strengthening of these connections through mini-sessions, round table discussions, workshops, and seminars to help inspire you to strengthen your connections in your own school environments. We look forward to seeing you there!

We will follow CT COVID guidelines and protocols at the time.
