State Officers play a crucial role in the HOSA-Future Health Professionals (HOSA-FHP) organization. These individuals are elected representatives from various schools across Minnesota who work diligently to manage and improve the overall HOSA experience for all members. Their responsibilities range from organizing statewide events, conferences, and competitions to serving as a communication bridge between HOSA-FHP chapters across the state. They engage in strategic planning, policy making, and advocacy for healthcare education, aiming to provide the best opportunities for members to learn, grow, and develop leadership skills in the field of healthcare.

State Officer Application 2024-2025

State Officers are the student leaders of Minnesota HOSA. As a student led organization, the importance of these roles cannot be overstated. State Officers have many responsibilities, including planning state events, coordinating with new and existing chapters, speaking in front of groups at the local and state levels, attending workshops, and giving updates to the MN HOSA Board. As a State Officer, you also have the opportunity to travel to DC and speak with your representatives, create your own initiatives and projects, gain leadership experience, and build your resume.
