CAREER CHOICE ASSIGNMENT You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.

You cannot select AAHPERD – it is too broad for the purposes of this assignment; however, you may choose one of the six affiliated organizations housed within AAHPERD, such as the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE). Please provide the full name of the organization, not just the initials/acronym (e.g., NATA or ACE). Provide the following information: A.
