Background: Please join us as we celebrate the 69th Annual NCAAHPERD-SM Convention!  The venue for this anticipated annual event is the Benton Convention Center - "reinvented" and ready for you to experience! Located in beautiful downtown Winston-Salem, the entire NCAAHPERD-SM Board is ready to welcome you to another exciting professional development experience.

Our Theme: This year's theme is "Healthy, Active, & Fit," because nothing can be finer than being Healthy, Active and Fit in North Carolina. North Carolina AAHPERD-SM provides a unique opportunity to renew and refresh your teaching methods and professional outlook.

Meet Your Keynoter - Dr. Curt Hinson!  We are excited and thrilled to have Dr. Curt Hinson as our keynoter. Curt has presented in all 50 states and abroad. Always in demand as a presenter, he is a former Delaware Physical Education Teacher of the Year as well as a SHAPE America Eastern District Teacher of the Year. His lively and upbeat presentations are his hallmark!

His practical approaches to teaching, non-stop games and activities for all, and ultra-high energy levels have established him as an educator you do not want to miss!

He is also the author of three teacher-endorsed books: Fitness for Children; Games Kids Should Play at Recess; and 6-Steps to a Trouble-free Playground. He is also in great demand for his “Trouble-free Playground” recess program and the “Dr. Recess” assembly program. Curt has been featured in the Wall Street Journal; Disney’s Family Fun magazine; and on the Fox News Network.

Friday's Keynote is Michelle Kasold, an Olympian Field Hockey athlete.
