Voting Delegate Experience

Congratulations on your selection as an HOSA Voting Delegate. This select group of individuals has a very important role guiding HOSA-Future Health Professionals into the future. Please take full advantage of this opportunity to be a part of HOSA history!
 
Duties of the Voting Delegate
The duties of the Voting Delegates are of utmost importance to the operation of a functioning student organization. HOSA is student-led; therefore, students are responsible for the governing of the affairs associated with the organization.  
 
Voting Delegate duties are to:  
  • Review and act upon the  business of the organization as presented by the Executive Council and  the HOSA, Inc. Board of Directors 
  • Enact proposed changes to the HOSA Bylaws      
  • Approve the Nominating Committee’s Report   
  • Elect the Executive Council 
  • Represent their chartered association

 

Voting Delegate Work at the Virtual International Leadership Conference 
Prior to ILC Arrival, Voting Delegates MUST

  • Review the proposed HOSA Service Projects

          - CATCH My Breath -- www.catchmybreath.org

          - National Pediatric Cancer Foundation -- www.nationalpcf.org

HOSA must have the name and email address of each Voting Delegate so a Voting Delegate Packet as well as the voting instructions, at the appropriate time, can be emailed to each person instead of sending to the State Advisor to disseminate.

 
Voting Delegate Eligibility
Voting Delegates will be ineligible to compete in competitive events at the Virtual ILC but a track of educational activities, HOSA’s Expo and Voting Delegates CAN participate and compete in the National Geographic Learning Academic Testing Center where winners will be announced at the Grand Awards Session on Saturday, and the Health Care Issues Exam as well as Recognition Events where recognition will take place in HOSA’s Hall of Recognition.
