Due to COVID-19, it's not possible to meet in person at the state conference this fall. We will miss you and we look forward to seeing you soon. Save the 2021 date.
Now it's time for the "INSHAPE Pivot."
First a little background . . . we know some think INSHAPE is primarily an annual state conference.
For others, INSHAPE is all about the year round INSHAPE benefits even if they can't attend the state conference.
Making the "INSHAPE Pivot" means increased emphasis on member engagement and member benefits for everyone. That definitely includes the return of a state conference when possible. For now, the pivot is about emphasizing teacher needs beyond hosting a conference.
The Pivot means supporting quality health and physical education by empowering one or more INSHAPE members in every Indiana K-12 school building. It means working towards our vision where every Indiana child learns to move in healthy ways for a lifetime. Read on about making the INSHAPE Pivot with us.
INSHAPE leadership has already started preparing new opportunities for you throughout the 2020-2021 school year. The Pivot includes new resources, new virtual events, enhanced engagements, bolstering professional learning teams, advocating for quality health and physical education, more PGP opportunities, and more member benefits.
There has NEVER, EVER, EVER, been a better time to be INSHAPE
Imagine the power of a member organization that includes representation from all 2,264 Indiana school buildings. We are indeed #BetterTogether, #StrongerTogether.
INSHAPE has already organized teams for you to join. Members can join one or more teams to engage with like-minded educators from around the state. It's your opportunity to find support and inspiration.
So here is your homework assignment (don't worry, it's easy . . . and it's worth it!). It's as simple as 1 . . . 2 . . . 3.
