2022 Spring Leadership Conference
March 28-April 1, 2022
Due to circumstances from Covid-19 and the current KU Medical Center Covid Policy, Kansas HOSA Future Health Professionals will be moving to a virtual Spring Leadership Conference. The virtual competitions will take place March 28-31 with an awards ceremony on Friday April, 1. We will be scheduling an Advisor Zoom Session to answer any questions that you may have. While this isn’t how we hoped our SLC would go, we are committed to making this experience a positive one for you and your students.
Conference Registration Fee: $30.00 (conference t-shirt included in registration fee)

State Officer Applications
We are accepting applications for the 2022-2023 State Officer Team. Applicants must be in good standings with their School and HOSA.

HOSA Testing Window
The SLC testing window will be February 28 - March 18, 2022. As the testing window approaches, an email will be sent to make sure your testing proctors are entered into the HOSA system. Student testing codes will be sent to all advisors by Friday, February 25. Proctors will also be able to see testing codes for their students. Student ID and Password will be different for each test they take. They will have to log out and then log back in to start a new test.
We encourage you to test early and not wait until the final week. March 18 is the last day for testing, there will not be an extension. With that, please encourage your students to begin study prep now!
In the coming weeks advisors will be receiving a spreadsheet with all competitions in detail. This document will tell you if an online test is required and if a Tallo upload is required. Tallo uploads are due by March 18, there will not be any exceptions!
If you have questions on Tallo or if your document did not upload you can use Tallo Support at email@example.com or call 855-765-7836. Do NOT wait until March 18 to upload documents to Tallo, we are not the only state that will be utilizing Tallo and the chances of you getting assistance if needed on Friday afternoon is not likely.
We are excited to have Dr. Jennifer Bacani McKenney as our keynote speaker. Dr. McKenney practices in Fredonia Kansas and will be bringing her story of working in rural medicine to our HOSA Conference. Many of you may have witnessed Dr. McKenney in the national news as she has been interviewed by a multitude of national news outlets reporting on how the pandemic has affected rural America.
