On November 10-13, 1976, 384 delegates and advisors came together
for a Constitutional Convention in Arlington, TX and HOSA-Future
Health Professionals was born. Now, 40 years later, the National
Executive Council invites you and 9,000 delegates, advisors and special
guests to join us in Nashville, TN for our first-ever International
Leadership Conference to celebrate!
This year’s conference will be the largest event and highlight of the
year for HOSA members! During the conference you’ll experience 4
unforgettable general sessions, 85 educational workshops and over
75 HOSA exhibits. And over 6,500 HOSA members will compete in 57
challenging competitive events!
It has been a year of exciting growth and innovation for HOSA. This
year marks HOSA’s 32nd year of continuous growth. We now have over
200,000 HOSA Members! We have added a middle school division and
have welcomed chapters from 5 different countries: Canada, Mexico,
Germany, Italy and American Samoa.
Over the past 40 years, we have inspired countless future health
professionals and we look forward to celebrating the unique journey
of HOSA—past, present and future with you in Nashville!
