This will be the final newsflash for the New Jersey HOSA website for this school year. It has been a great pleasure for me to contribute to the website. I hope the information provided has been enlightening and interesting as well.
Let’s begin with news concerning the upcoming HOSA National Leadership Conference. One hundred sixteen students plus advisors and guests will be attending the National HOSA Conference in Atlanta, Georgia in June 2003.
As a reminder, the National Leadership Conference will be held in at Atlanta Hyatt hotel. Dr. Cammarota has scheduled a New Jersey state meeting in the Atlanta Hyatt immediately following the Opening Session. Be sure to attend so you can learn about the various activities, rules, and other vital information for the conference.
New Jersey is responsible for the Nurse Assisting competition at the Leadership conference. All advisors who wish to help are needed for the event. Additionally, CEUs (continuing education units) are available for advisors who help out with the event.
The New Jersey HOSA Executive Council voted to provide the entire New Jersey delegation with t-shirts at the conference. These t-shirts will be provided free of charge to all the HOSA members and guests. This is a great way to unite the group and hopefully increase the spirit during the conference.
Other news concerning New Jersey HOSA:
New Jersey HOSA will be partnering with the New Jersey Hospital Association in an effort to get information to students concerning allied health careers, education, and also to utilize the expertise of the allied health community as judges for competitive events. New Jersey HOSA is looking forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the New Jersey Hospital Association.
Generation Next arrangements are being made. All New Jersey HOSA Executive Council members are expected to attend this summer event. The dates for the conference are Monday and Tuesday, August 18, 19, 2003.
