Here are some ways to be involved in our Commission, related to ACPA's annual convention:

Sponsored Program Presenters

Conference presentations are excellent opportunities to share your work and knowledge with a wide variety of professionals on the topics of recreation and athletics. Submitting through the commission also increases the likelihood of acceptance.

There are many options for your presentation type, one of which is Sponsored or Co-Sponsored Programs. If you are submitting a recreation, athletic, or wellness focused program, we encourage you to select “Sponsored Program” with the “Recreation, Athletics, and Wellness Commission” as your program type. If your program is not selected as a Sponsored Program, it will then be reviewed as a submission for a General Program. 

If you are interested in presenting, please submit a program proposal through the official ACPA Convention link. More information avaialble here: http://convention.myacpa.org/nashville2020/.

Sponsored Program Reviewers

Each year our commission seeks individuals to review programs related to campus recreation, athletics, and wellness. This is a great way to become more involved in ACPA and help select programs to be sponsored by the commission at the conference.


In mid-September, program reviewers will be sent a link to review up to 5 programs using an online system with a provided rubric. Reviewers will have 2-3 weeks to evaluate their sessions. Each program will be reviewed by at least 3 individuals so you will not be the only person evaluating a session.


If you are interested in reviewing for the Recreation, Athletics, and Wellness Commission, you will need to do three things:

  1. Sign up on the ACPA website to become a reviewer. The link to the site can be found at: TBD.
  2. Under “Are you interested in reviewing sessions on behalf of Entities for sponsorship?" be sure check Commission for Recreation, Athletics, and Wellness.
  3. Please email our Vice Chair for Conventions at [email protected] so we can add you to our list for the commission. 

Thank you for considering volunteering your time or presenting on your work and becoming involved in the Commission for Recreation, Athletics, and Wellness. Please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions!
