    • Tuesday---8am-12noon OR  1:30pm-4pm

14. Student substitutions---conference registered students can only be added to an existing team and must be willing to be taken out of their original event.  If you know of substitutions prior to conference, please send me the following information:

    • Student name
    • Chapter #
    • Event to be taken out of
    • Team to be added to
15. Conference Registration volunteers needed---if you are available to help with conference registration on Sunday (7:15pm-8:30pm) and/or Monday (7:45am-9am), please contact Rhonda Foote at rhonda.foote@careertech.ok.gov
16. Judges NEEDED--There are still events that need judges.  If I don’t fill all the judges slots, then the events will run longer and the students and advisors will probably not be happy with having a longer wait to compete.  So, please contact me if you have not confirmed helping with an event.
Please review all previous HOSA emails---all emails have important information!  This is Email #7, so you should have 6 previous emails.  All previous emails are linked to the OK HOSA website.

Please let me know if you have any questions about events, conference, anything HOSA!
Have a great spring break!

Oklahoma HOSA State Advisor
