Become A Leader

NCPEID has a significant historical, current and future impact on shaping the direction of physical education and physical activity for individuals with disabilities. It was founded with the vision of quality personnel preparation, research/demonstration, and service related to Adapted Physical Education/Activity. Numerous leaders in the academic disciplines of APE/A have served the organization and have helped shape effective physical education and physical activity programming for individuals with disabilities.  NCPEID invites it's members to consider serving in an elected or appointed position as an officer and/or member of one of the numerous standing committees.
