Happy Thursday, HOSA Leaders! 
Last week was the deadline for getting hotel information submitted to the Grand Traverse Resort and the hotel is now placing schools alphabetically. You should be hearing from them soon if you have not already. We will continue to work with everyone else who is offsite with overflow hotels and transportation. Please keep checking our website for a complete list of overflow hotels. If you plan to make reservations at a hotel NOT listed on the website, please email to ensure transportation will be provided. 

As a reminder, below are the upcoming SLC deadlines:
  • FEBRUARY 10TH: SLC REGISTRATION DUE by 11:59pm (Refunds will not be provided after this date.)
  • February 10th: State Officer Candidate Application due 
  • February 10th: Student Eligibility Forms due (for students registered for Interviewing Skills, Life Support Skills, Personal Care and Speaking Skills)

In this week's episode of The HOSA Way, Mark and Sam spend some time on another valuable professional development tool for students to learn before SLC. We encourage you to share this episode with your students so they can be prepared to make conversations and listen effectively to their peers at states. For this week's SLC updates, skip ahead to minute 9:45 where we go over more hotel information, advisor gifts and WHO needs to register for the event. It's a lengthy episode, but full of valuable information. 

Lastly, a tentative Main Schedule is provided and a tentative Schedule of Competitive Events for the state conference is now available. You will see that this year is VERY DIFFERENT from years past, so please keep an open mind about the format.  Feel free to share the schedule with your students so proper planning can take place, but please know things are subject to change and no special accommodations will be made. 
Just in case you missed it... Michigan HOSA does NOT require members to upload material to Tallo for Regionals or the State Leadership Conference. Members WILL need to upload event material (if applicable) if participating in the HOSA International Leadership Conference.
