HOSA Chapters

Starting a Chapter

Now that an advisor has decided to sponsor a local HOSA chapter, it’s as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Email the North Dakota HOSA state advisor.
  2. Submit your letter of intent and the membership application to the state advisor.
  3. Email the State Advisor to request your affiliation number and password.

If you came to a program that already has a HOSA chapter, your next steps will involve learning about the HOSA chapter from last year’s members.

2016-2017 Membership Fee

  • $15 - Includes National and State fees

Organizing a New Chapter

If you are starting a new HOSA chapter, you have a great opportunity to create an exceptional student organization. Here’s how:

  1. Get approval. Make sure you follow the rules of your school and get the support of administrators.
  2. Develop interest. Tell students the purpose of HOSA, refer them to the website, and ask students to suggest activity ideas for their HOSA chapter.
  3. Have a start-up plan. Ask interested students to put together the Constitution and Bylaws
  4. Plan for electing officers.
  5. Empower the students to lead. Tell the students what they need to do and help guide them along the way.
  6. Affiliate. Collect dues and complete online chapter affiliation.
  7. Give the students the rule book. Send students to the HOSA Handbook Section C.
