Hello TN HOSA!
November has been an exciting month for your state officer team as well as for all the members of TN HOSA! Members
and Chapters across the state and nation participated in National HOSA week. Some activities conducted by chapters include doing canned food drives for local shelters, promoting awareness of the mission of HOSA in the community,
and thanking members of the Health Care Community for the work that they do.
The executive council facilitated the St. Thomas Health Symposium and conducted the TN HOSA State Conference Planning Meeting! State conference is less than one hundred days away, and regional conferences are approaching even sooner than that! It truly is an exciting time of year for HOSA members.
With that in mind, remember to be very intentional about goals during this time, especially for the senior members. Deadlines for scholarship applications, college applications, and assignments for school are right around the corner, as well as Final exams for many members, regional competitions, and many other HOSA activities! With so many things going on, it is quite easy for one to be overwhelmed.
Set aside time to accomplish goals, and work diligently to accomplish those goals. Be intentional. Schedule time every
evening to spend on homework, accounting for fluctuations in the amount of homework from night to night. You do not have to work all evening to finish your homework if you diligently work to finish each task and do not allow yourself to be distracted.
Figure out what works for you. If you find that you forget what Homework you need to do when the evening arrives, make yourself a to-do list. If you constantly miss deadlines for applications and assignments, use your phone's calendar and Google Calendars to remind yourself of important deadlines.
With so much going on, it easy to be overwhelmed. Remember to find time for yourself in all of the activity. Schedule time to go for a run. Read a book. Hang out with friends. Enjoy
Lastly, do not forget that your State officer team is here
for you! If you have any suggestions for state conference, such as an idea for
a fun night activity, please do not hesitate to contact us with your
Have a happy holiday season!
