The purpose of the Fall Leadership Conference is for Local Chapter Leaders to cultivate leadership skills individually and as a team, learn useful tools to effectively manage a local chapter, and develop a local chapter program of work. Local chapter members will attend presentations from the Missouri HOSA 2021-2022 State Officer Team.
Local Chapters should dress in matching shirts (if at all possible) of either a local chapter HOSA t-shirt/polo or a school t-shirt/polo, along with either khaki pants (preferred) or jeans (with no holes) and closed-toed shoes on Thursday. On Friday, all conference participants will be expected to wear the provided Long-Sleeved T-Shirt given out at registration, along with khaki pants (preferred) or jeans (with no holes) and closed-toed shoes.
