The annual LAHPERD convention returns in 2017! Program requests are now being accepted (see below), and other details will be made available over the spring and summer as they are finalized.
Call for Program Requests
The Call for Program Requests has closed.
If your program is accepted for the convention, the program materials used in your presentation (PowerPoint slides, handouts, etc.) MUST BE submitted via email to the Convention Manager (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the Division Vice-President (who notifies you of your presentation acceptance) to be made available for convention attendees by October 1.
Eligibility to Present: Each presenter (posters included) who is eligible for LAHPERD membership must be a current member and must register as a convention participant if he/she intends to attend convention sessions other than his/her own. If you are not a member of LAHPERD, are not eligible for membership, and are only presenting, you do not need to join LAHPERD or pay registration.
Confirmation of Programs: Confirmation notices of programs accepted for the convention will be sent following the June board meeting. Confirmation notices detailing convention day and time will be sent out after the program is completed. We expect the entire convention program to be online by September 1; therefore, we will complete all convention programming decisions by August 1.
If you are interested in serving as an exhibitor at the 2017 Convention, please download the Exhibitor Information Packet and remit the registration form included.
