AAHE Merger with SOPHE

Folks, as most of you know, the American Association of Health Education (AAHE) will be ‘deactivated’ from the American Alliance of Health, Physical Education,Recreation, and Dance (AAHPERD) effective April 1, 2013 (I may be off slightly on that date). At that point, AAHE will no longer exist–it’s acronym and association will be retired within AAHPERD. The AAHE membership are strongly encouraged to join with SOPHE to form a larger, more viable association for health educators.

This has been years in the making…what are your thoughts? What are the pros and cons?
