2020 OAHPERD Convention Update
It is with sincere regret to announce that the 2020 OAHPERD Convention will not take place in-person as planned. Considering the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainty of the near future OAHPERD feels it would be irresponsible to have the convention in-person. We will be working to reformat the convention to a virtual “mini convention” that may take place as a series of virtual events over several months. 
Stay tuned for more details in the coming months!
Mark your calendar for our 2021 State Convention – December 1-3 at Kalahari Resort


Are we still having the convention this year?
Yes, as of now, we are still planning on having the convention December 2-4 at Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, Ohio.

 Will Kalahari assure our safety?
We have talked with the management of Kalahari Resorts and they have assured us that they are taking safety precautions seriously.  For a complete list of what Kalahari is doing to ensure our safety, click on this link: https://www.kalahariresorts.com/what-we-are-doing-to-ensure-a-safe-getaway/#24180

 Can I still submit a proposal to present?
Yes, we have extended our deadline for submitting a proposal to August 1. 

What if I have submitted a proposal and I am unable to attend?
We completely understand that this year presents a lot of challenges. If for some reason, it will not be possible for you to attend, you may cancel your presentation.  

We will continue to keep you up to date about the convention. As time progresses and we learn more about changes in the operation of schools, status of COVID, and state mandates, we will be able to make a more informed decision about the convention. We want to maintain the quality of our convention and present a safe environment for our members. 

We welcome any input that you have in making our final decision. 

The call for convention proposals is now open!
