Town Hall Meetings
We want to hear what is on your mind; what questions do you have; what concerns are facing you in this new instructional environment?

The Town Hall Meeting agenda and format is fluid. You can zoom in to any, all, or none of the zoom meetings. We have scheduled multiple meeting dates and times so that it may accommodate your availability.

During our town hall we may want to discuss details about how regional competitions will operate this year. However, the focus is about hearing from you and answering your questions. The format of these calls will allow you to call and participate as long as you wish and you can exit the call whenever you wish. 

The specifics on the four Zoom invites are listed below.

Membership/Affiliation Details
As students affiliate this year we area asking them to provide an email address that is not a school email address. We found many students who competed at the Virtual ILC could not be easily be reached via email as they had used a school email address that was either deactivated over the summer or inaccessible since the student was not in the school facility. Also many schools have firewalls that will block incoming emails outside their particular system, thus making it difficult to share important messages and updates regarding HOSA and Tallo.
Send an email to Jim Scott to sign up another advisor or your administrators that may benefit from this weekly newsletter.
