RESTON, VA, May 8, 2013 – The American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD) began a new chapter in its 128-year old history recently when its Alliance Assembly (AA) overwhelmingly approved unification (204 approved, 0 opposed, 1 abstained) at its AAHPERD National Convention & Expo in Charlotte, NC. As a result, AAHPERD's five national associations, six district associations and its Research Consortium are now one unified organization.
"This is an historic moment in time for our Alliance," said AAHPERD President Gale Wiedow of the Dakota State University in South Dakota. "With unification we are confident that we will be better able to serve the needs of our members by creating a more efficient, effective, member-focused and forward-looking organizational structure."
