Take a few moments to remember
all the goals and aspirations you have had throughout your life.
Think of the times when you wanted to accomplish something but
there was always something or someone holding you back. For once,
would you like to have an opportunity to fulfill your goal and
have it be your own decision. Consider the following questions.
Have you ever wanted to do something that would give you the opportunity
to make a difference? Have you ever had an opportunity to make
decisions that would affect thousands of Americans? Do you want
the opportunity to lead others into the future of health care?
With these questions in mind, have you ever considered being a
national officer for the HOSA?
It may seem that being a national
officer is too large of a role. However, if you have ever considered
running for an office, then you have already conquered the biggest
obstacle. But why should anyone run for national office? You already
know the answer to this question. The answer lies in your own
personal beliefs, goals and aspirations. Maybe you want an ultimate
experience in leadership before you enter college. Maybe you want
an opportunity to meet and listen to the members of HOSA from
across the nation. Perhaps you want an opportunity to strengthen
your leadership skills and make HOSA an even larger part of your
life. On the other hand, you might be on the road to graduation
from college and you would like to have a professional experience
before entering the workforce.
Whatever your reasoning may
be, the most important thing to remember is that HOSA offers
all its members so many different opportunities. HOSA offers
its members the opportunity for knowledge. If you would like
to run for national office, you will have the opportunity to
gain knowledge about competitive events, health care and the
people you will be able to serve. HOSA also gives everyone the
opportunity to create and utilize individual skill. For example,
if you are in attendance at the National Leadership Conference
in Anaheim, CA, and are running for national office, you will
have the opportunity to strengthen your skills in communication
and public speaking. And, if you are a national officer for HOSA
you will have an opportunity for leadership. As a national officer
you will have the opportunity of a lifetime. National officers
are the ambassadors to this great student lead organization.
National officers have made the decision to gain knowledge, skill
and leadership. National officers have also made the decision
to overcome obstacles and serve on the highest leadership position
HOSA has to offer. Be part of all that HOSA has to offer.
Believe in yourself and make
the decision of a lifetime because this is a decision that can
only be made by one person.You. Make the decision to be a national
officer for HOSA and create a great future with HOSA, health care
and you. Just remember that the biggest obstacle to overcome is
making the decision to run for national office.
