General Session Sponsorship at NYS AHPERD Conference

We’re proud to be sponsoring a general session again at the 77th Annual NYS AHPERD (New York Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance) Conference. The conference is taking place November 19th-22nd at the Turning Stone Convention Center in Verona, NY.

We’ve participated in the conference many times in the past and have presented on PEP and other grant opportunities for attendees. Due to scheduling conflicts we will not have team members at the conference this year, but we will have a table with business cards, company signage, and an ad in the program. We are also making some fresh fruit available immediately following the general session we are sponsoring. That session is taking place on Thursday from 9:25 A.M. to 10:40 A.M. in the Showroom. The speaker during the session is Dr. Joe Martin, an award-winning motivational speaker, author, professor and educational consultant. Get more information on Dr. Joe Martin here.
