Our Board.

PSAHPERD, the premier organization in providing professional development, leadership and advocacy in health and physical education has modernized our structure. The foundation of PSAHPERD was built with the energy and commitment of volunteer board members during the last 96 years. We value the tradition of excellence our association was built upon, and look to strengthen our organization and membership as we transition into a more efficient operating structure.  

Are you passionate about health and physical education? Interested in social media? Great with budgeting? Enjoy planning and organizing events? We would love to have you join our Board of Directors! 

PSAHPERD relies on motivated, dedicated individuals who believe in helping us achieve our vision of overall wellness in Pennsylvania. We work to do so by educating our members, advocating at the state and federal levels, and providing the leadership needed in our field.  

Together, our board members have:

  • Organized 96 state conventions
  • Offered and processed Act 48 credit hours
  • Authored/assembled yearly journals containing lesson ideas, important reflections, and research
  • Held many one-day workshops and clinics
  • Provided advocacy efforts at the state and federal level 
  • Offered grant funding and scholarship opportunities

All of this and more are achieved with dedication from educators who want to make a difference. While this year's Board of Director's application window has closed,  we are always looking for committee chairs and members! Please contact Jessica Peconi-Cook if interested. ([email protected])
