The Australian Physical Education Teachers Association (APEA) was established in 1955 and later became the ACHPER organisation. In 1962, Ern Haliday became the first WA Branch President.
Life Members have given outstanding service to their Branches and to National ACHPER over many years and those awarded more recently continue to hold office or support the organisation at National and Branch level. Life Membership is the highest and most prestigious National award available to ACHPER Members.
