As a National Officer, you will have the opportunity to shape a rapidly growing company while building your professional network and making a difference in the community. Officers will receive training in project management, business communication and event planning skills, but at the end of the day, this opportunity will only be as rewarding as the amount of time invested into it.
The time commitment is 3-7 hours a week excluding ~2 hour weekly online meetings during the regular school year, so officers should have strong academic and time management skills but also be willing to prioritize their duties as an officer of HOSA Canada over all other extracurricular commitments.
In addition, officers are expected to attend the HOSA Canada Spring Leadership conference in March and all monthly in-person meetings at the HOSA Canada office located in downtown Toronto.
National Officers will be expected to undergo training and work at the HOSA Canada office following a regular work schedule, i.e. 9 AM to 5 PM, at least three days per week for at least one month during the summer.
National Officers are not allowed hold an executive position with their school chapter during their term and may not compete at the Spring Leadership Conference and/or the International Leadership Conference.
