MAHPERD Policy on Membership and Convention Registration for PRESENTERS

Due to the expenses involved in a non-profit organization event of this magnitude, similar to our National and Regional organizations, MAHPERD Policy requires that ALL in attendance at the annual Convention, including Speakers/Presenters, must be paid 2018 MAHPERD members and also pay the Convention Registration fees EXCEPT that:

1. (Membership) They certify that they are either (a) paid current members of other related HPERD professional organizations with which MAHPERD has reciprocity (includes other STATE associations but NOT SHAPE America; or (b) are employed exclusively in the fields that are NOT part of the HPERD professions (doctors, police, education department personnel, etc.)

2. (Registration) Presenters who are Non-MAHPERD members, employed outside the HPERD professions, are asked to register for the Convention IF they plan to attend other sessions/programs, but will be exempted upon advanced request IF they will be in attendance only to make their own presentation. ALL MAHPERD Members must register for entry to the Convention.

Vendors can secure a session at the cost of $200.00/hr and at the discretion of the MAHPERD Board. Any questions call or email:
