It’s time to mark your calendar. We have started making plans for the 91st annual OAHPERD State Convention. This year, our convention will be held December 2-4 at Kalahari  Resorts in Sandusky. Kalahari has made several changes in procedures and assures us that safety is foremost. 

The submission for proposals is now open and on the website under convention. If you would like to share your experience with our members, please submit a proposal. Proposals are due by August 1.


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:

 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!
