Welcome to the New Website

Welcome to the New Website

Everything needs a fresh coat of paint eventually.  Well, here's the new paint job for the IAHPERD website.  I hope you find it useful and not too overwhelming. I have tried to make sure that the most important content is going to always show up on the home page and everything is still intuitively accessible in the menus.  Over the years, IAHPERD has grown in everything the organization does for HPERD professionals. Tackling all this is tough since everyone wants something specific. Your input into what you like and dislike is important to me so that I can make this site work for everyone.

I have made sure the site will adapt to any electronic device.  I have also added new features to the website and there is a lot more to come.  If you notice that a specific page doesn't look quite right, I probably haven't finished with it yet.  Technology changes and we have to change with it. Like I said, there is more to come as we at IAHPERD move toward making your user experience with our website, tools, and programming useful and a positive one.

Make sure you get registered for convention by October 19th since online registration will be taken down after that date.  Also, if you are not getting "On the Move" from me emailed to you every month, you either let your membership expire or something is wrong with your email and you need to let me know.

I look forward to hearing from you as you express your thoughts and comments, likes and dislikes, pros and cons regarding the site and other tools as they change.  You can always reach me at bill@iahperd.org

Hope to see you at convention,

Bill Casey
