** Convention Registration Information **

ATTENTION! - ATTENTION! Please carefully read the following seven IMPORTANT items before proceeding to register:

(#1) NCAAHPERD-SM/NC SHAPE Members receive a significant discount on our State Convention. If you are not a member, please join HERE > Also, as a member you will receive regular e-mail blasts with more specific information as a lead-up to the State Convention. If you are not a member, you will miss out on these important updates.

(#2) This will be a Virtual State Convention running over the entire month of November, 2020. We will have LIVE sessions starting on Sunday, November 1st through Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Individuals not able to watch LIVE may enjoy watching the recorded sessions on-demand through midnight November 30, 2020. No exceptions!

(#3) You have just ONE CHANCE to register for the desired renewal credit amount. In other words, if you decide to register for 1.5 CEUs and later decide you'd rather do 3.0 CEUs, this will take an entirely new registration fee. Thus more money! A word to the wise.

(#4) You will need to watch each session for the full time. The Whova app that we are using is able to track actual screen minutes for us. If you watch less than 40 minutes of a session you WILL NOT RECEIVE credit. Repeat: You WILL NOT RECEIVE credit. As with our in-person State Convention, there will be numerous sessions during each Breakout Time Slot, up to 10 concurrent presentations. Our virtual platform will actually allow you greater freedom to watch multiple sessions during the month of November that you would not normally have access to in a live setting.

(#5) While you can watch as many of the 100+ sessions during the month of November as desired, you will only get credit for the level of CEUs paid. For example: If you paid for 1.5 CEUs, that is the maximum you will be able to receive. If you watch less than 15 sessions, you will get only the CEUs watched. For example, if you paid for 1.5 CEUs and only watched 7 sessions, you will receive a certificate for .7 CEUs. If you paid for 2.0 CEUs and watched 23 sessions, you will only receive a certificate for 2.0 CEUs, not 2.3. NOTE: You cannot earn more than 3.0 CEUs. PLEASE DO NOT register for more.

(#6) We will only issue CEU Certificate at the end of November. This will most likely take us a week to track, verify and send your certificate to you. Your patience is appreciated!

(#7) Any Questions? If you have any questions, please contact Artie Kamiya ( or (919) 818-6486 as needed. Looking for to seeing you on-screen as we will use Zoom as our Virtual Learning Platform.
