Affiliation is the process of “affiliating” the student with Global and Florida HOSA. Thus making them HOSA members.
Registration is the process of “registering” members for a HOSA Conference.
Members can compete in one competitive event while also participating in one recognition level event. A member cannot participate in two competitive type events or two recognition level events.
While the official deadline is pretty late into the school year, however only Affiliated students are able to participate in Conferences.
Thus, the deadline to affiliate students is before your Regional Conference registration closes. If you Affiliate after the registration closes then your students will not be able to compete at all for that school year.

If you do not have a photo ID, you can fill out the second page in this PDF: http://www.hosa.org/sites/default/files/HOSA%20APPENDIXH2019.pdf
If this is filled out correctly, the page will be able to substitute for a lack of having a photo ID.
