The Florida HOSA Alumni & Professional Association was organized with its primary mission, “To support and promote Florida HOSA activities at chapter, regional, and state levels” (please see FHAPA Bylaws below). While the organization is still fairly new, we are working diligently to develop it so that chapters and regions can have a larger pool of resources to draw upon – and we are seeing it grow quickly! Please click this link to view our Charter Members!
To entice FHAPA members to assist with the Regional Conferences (for dates and locations – hover over the “Conferences” tab in the Navigation Bar above, then click on “Regional Conferences”) – any FHAPA member that can assist as a judge or other event personnel for a total of at least 6 hours at various conferences will receive recognition during the Annual FHAPA Meeting at the SLC. To be eligible for recognition, a portion of the 6 hours must be volunteered at a Regional Conference or two (or more!). If attending the SLC, additional hours may be accumulated to meet or exceed the minimum of 6 hours. Please see additional details on the form that must be submitted to the State Advisor to receive recognition. We also ask that you contact the Regional Advisors prior to their conferences so they can make plans to utilize your services in the most efficient manner.
We look forward to seeing FHAPA flourish as, together, we endeavor to harness the passion and energy of our past Florida HOSA members and our current professional partners!
