The halls are busy and energetic as HOSA members prepare for their orientations, exams and procedures for events that begin today.

First thing in the morning, Round Two competitors are posted for HOSA Bowl, Parliamentary Procedure, Medical Reading and Creative Problem Solving. Delegates compete in the second round of these events throughout the day.

The National Officer Candidates are busy once again with the “Meet the Candidates’ Breakfast” from 7:00 – 8:30 AM. Here, they greet the Voting Delegates and have a chance to introduce themselves to those they might not have had the opportunity to meet.

Nursing Spectrum, one of HOSA’s partners, exhibits and shares publications with delegates.

Exhibitors begin to set up at 9:00 AM and prepare for their second day at this year’s National Leadership Conference. It’s a busy day for the exhibitors as competitors and delegates stop by regularly to learn more about their organizations.

Approximately 120 judges arrive during the day and attend orientations to help them fully understand their role in the Competitive Events process. HOSA is extremely thankful to the judges who volunteer their time to ensure that each competitor has the best opportunity and experience at this year’s NLC. Our judges make it possible for students to compete in order to succeed.

Educational Symposiums take place throughout the day and conference delegates are invited to attend as many as they are able. Educational Symposiums are a great tool for HOSA members because they learn about real world issues and experience education outside the classroom. There are a variety of different Educational Symposiums at this year’s NLC ranging from “Resume Writing”, “Hands on Anatomy in Clay – Myology: Build a Body” to “Fighting Cancer in Your Community” and much more!

The Business Session begins today at 3:00 PM. This session is open to all HOSA delegates at the National Leadership Conference, but Voting Delegates are the only HOSA members allowed to vote on the proposed motions and National Officer Candidates. Voting concluded at 6:00 PM, and the results will be announced on Friday evening at the Recognition Session.

Delegates attend the “Hands on Anatomy in Clay” Educational Symposium.

It is obvious that the delegates are having an exciting time meeting new people, competing and spending time with their HOSA friends. They look forward to the days ahead and the possibility of being awarded for their achievements.
