The Florida HOSA Chapters listed below have earned the unique distinction of becoming a “Guardian Chapter” – guarding Florida HOSA’s commitment to our core values of Learning, Leadership, Service, and Innovation by valiantly striving to make sure that our organization continues into the future shining brighter than ever before! The “Guardian Chapter” designation will be granted in the 2021 – 2022 academic year as follows:
A Designated 2020 – 2021 Guardian Chapter (Click here for list) must meet or exceed their chapter membership number from the 2020/21 academic year.
A chapter that affiliated in 2020 – 2021, but was not a designated Guardian Chapter must meet or exceed their chapter membership number from the 2019/20 academic year.
An existing chapter that did not affiliate in 2020 – 2021 must meet or exceed their chapter membership number from the 2019/20 academic year (or most immediate prior year if not affiliated in the 2019/20 academic year).
A brand-new chapter in the 2021/22 academic year must affiliate at least five (5) members, plus the Chapter Advisor, to be a designated Guardian Chapter.
Please contact the Florida HOSA State Office if you do not know your school’s previous membership total.
Florida HOSA will recognize these exceptional chapters by posting their school name to this special page on our state website. In addition, during the General Sessions at SLC, they will be highlighted on the large screens and distinguished in the SLC Program.
Also, members of a designated Guardian Chapter can purchase a striking, high polished copper-plated lapel pin for $1.50 each (plus postage) through their advisor to commemorate their championing for Florida HOSA during these unprecedented times.
