Call for HOSA Members to Serve on
Statewide Committees
All chapters who register for the Fall Leadership Conference are given the first opportunity to nominate one member to serve on a statewide committee. Ideally, each school will have a member of a committee.

Ohio HOSA has established eight (8) committees that will meet virtually throughout the year to address and propose new initiatives for our organization. The eight committees are:
Public Relations
Alumni Development
Competitive Events
Bylaws/Policies and Procedures

Once your chapter is registered you will be contacted in mid-October to submit the name of the nominee with their email address. The committees will be announced on October 28th at the virtual Fall Leadership Conference.

Each committee will meet in the Fall and Spring to develop an agenda, discuss issues, and offer recommendations to be presented to the delegates at the State Leadership Conference and eventually to the Ohio HOSA, Inc. Board of Directors.

Leadership for each committee will consist of an advisor and state officer. Committee chairs will be selected from within the committee.
We are looking forward to grassroot input as we continue to grow our organization.
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.
