Attend a Regional Drive-in Workshop
Your first step in getting involved with HPEC is to attend one of the regional drive-in workshops. Please contact your Regional Representative (see HPEC Regions for more information) to find out when your next drive-in workshop will be held.
The Annual HPEC Conference
A definite 'must do' for any HPEC member, is the annual conference. It is held in a different region each year to allow equal access for participants. It is two plus days of education and fun. You will come away with the knowledge and energy to bolster your existing health and phys. ed. programs.

While you are at it, perhaps you have something you would like to contribute in the way of a session or activity at the next HPEC conference or teachers convention. Contact your Regional Representative for more information on how you can become a presenter.
