Tuesday, June 19, 2007 marked the preliminary day for the 2007 National HOSA Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida. Everyone was busy preparing HOSA Headquarters and Competitive Events Headquarters for the conference delegates.
The Competitive Events leadership met all day preparing for the upcoming 50 events with over 4,000 competitors. Everyone has worked hard to make sure competitive events runs as smoothly as possible.
New state officers spent the morning in the Leadership Academy with Mark Burley. Mark led the group in some interesting activities that focused on leadership skills. Excitement was in the air as the students prepared themselves for the tasks that lie ahead of them.
Mark also led the afternoon Leadership Academy for students who had participated in officer training prior to the NLC. Mark engaged them in interactive sessions that enhanced their critical thinking skills, leadership skills and much more.
Then at 3:00 p.m. the hustle and bustle of state advisor registration began. It was a great time for state advisors to see each other and receive materials for their states. After the rush of registration, the state advisors were able to enjoy a dinner meeting sponsored by Applied Technologies. State advisors received information on conference updates and some well-deserved thanks for their service to HOSA.
Students, advisors, guests and family members arrived at the hotels throughout the day. Not only were things busy at the Marriott but also the Buena Vista Suites and Caribe Royale hotels experienced the HOSA delegate influx. After a long day of traveling on buses, planes and cars, students and advisors were happy to reach their final destination in the “magical land of Disney” and Orlando, Florida.
Seventeen candidates began the national officer screening process. The candidates attended an orientation session and completed the officer examination. The interview schedule for the officer candidates was posted at 10:30 p.m.
For the final event of the day, the National Executive Council hosted a reception for state presidents.
It has been a great day! Everyone is excited about the 30th Annual National Leadership Conference.
HOSA and the fun still await the delegates at the 2007 NLC!
