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 varies throughout the year but can be up to 4 hours per day leading up to the national conference and 12+ hours per day during the conference. ~2 hour online meetings are held on a weekly basis during the regular school year, so officers should have strong academic and time management skills and also be willing to prioritize their duties as an officer of HOSA Canada over all other extracurricular commitments. Desirable qualities in officer applicants include the readiness to take on more tasks and responsibilities if needed, having a clear idea of at least one realistic way to improve the HOSA experience for all Canadian students, and the willingness to remain with the organization for many years.

Officers are expected to attend 1. two training sessions during the summer, 2. the HOSA Canada Spring Leadership conference in May, and 3. all in-person meetings for which the time and date will be given at least 2 weeks in advance.

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.
