Welcome to the 56TH Annual Conference of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Directors Association!  This years’ conference will once again offer excellent speakers, outstanding professional development, and many opportunities to network and catch up with colleagues and friends.  

Our Executive Council has worked all year long to help make our conference the best in the country. I am sure you are going to enjoy our speakers and presenters and leave Hershey with many ideas of how to improve your own athletic department.

The Foundation Raffle & Silent Auction will be held on Wednesday evening the 20th of March at 7:30 PM in the Great Hall. Our Foundation continues to give $13,000 a year in scholarships to graduating seniors. The Foundation supports student-athletes, coaching education and our membership in general. Please support the raffle and Foundation for this very worthwhile cause. 

The Keynote Session will be held on Thursday March 21 st . This session will honor the NIAAA/PSADA Scholarship Recipients, and the Keynote Speaker will be Anne Marie Anderson, Emmy Award Winning Sports Broadcaster. General Session Speakers, scheduled for Thursday, March 21 st and Friday March 22 nd , will focus on Mental Health for Student Athletes, Athletic Administrators promoting their school’s program, and the NFL Up Program, promoting Women’s Flag Football.

The awards banquet on Thursday, March 21st at noon will honor and recognize our Regional and Athletic Director of the Year, several special award recipients and the 2024 PSADA Hall of Fame Inductees. These individuals have worked very hard to distinguish themselves as leaders in athletic administration. Please join us in recognizing them for all their time, wisdom, and dedication to their students. Thursday evening March 21st will be the Third Annual PSADA Corn Hole Tournament and Social.

Please take some time to personally visit each one of our vendors. Their continued support allows us to continue to have our conference at such a reasonable cost to our membership.  They would greatly appreciate a few minutes of your time.

As you see me during the conference, please feel free to talk to me about any ideas or concerns that you may have about our conference or PSADA in general. I am honored to be able to serve each and every one of you.  I sincerely hope that you have a meaningful, enjoyable, and rewarding conference. Please return to this page often. As the PSADA Executive Council solidifies the Conference Program it will be posted here.
