RightResponse Fundraising
Ohio HOSA is pleased to announce that we have joined with International HOSA and have become an officially endorsed partner with Right Response Fundraising.

Because everyone needs to have a first aid kit, this partnership could yield huge profits for our chapters. Right Response has created a variety of first aid kits to meet the needs of every family, individuals and businesses. The kits come in many sizes and most of the kits are compact enough to allow easy transport. They can fit in a glove box, purse, golf bag, backpack, picnic basket, or suitcase, and they make wonderful gifts too.

Ohio HOSA chapters that conduct a Right Response fundraiser will earn 50% profit, AND Right Response will make a donation to be used for scholarships for Ohio HOSA students and also at the international HOSA level. This is a win-win-win situation for all.
If you are looking for a fundraiser, this might be the one for you. We want to provide resources that might help you meet your goals. As with any fundraiser, please ensure you follow the proper channels through the local school system.

To get more information or to register to conduct a fundraiser contact:  Sandi Burgess, 201-450-4504, eastcoastfundraising@myrightresponse.com

2019-20 Medical & Code of Conduct Forms
Similar to last year, we are encouraging advisors to have all of their students complete the HOSA Medical Form and Code of Conduct Form at the start of the year. One instructor shared with me that she has all students complete these forms the first week of school and then she does not need to worry about having the forms for the competition or conferences.
Send completed forms to me and I will hold them for all events sponsored by Ohio and National HOSA including FLC, Cavs Educational Event, Regional Competitive Events, SLC, and ILC.
Click the below button to access the forms that can be downloaded, printed, and completed.
Send an email to Jim Scott to sign up another teacher or your administrators that may benefit from this weekly newsletter.
