The State Leadership Conference (SLC) is often a culminating event for the year where students gather with other statewide HOSA chapters. It is where we host our yearly business meeting, elect our state officer team, conduct leadership and hands on skills training, as well as, provide educational symposiums.

The Competitive Events Program is often a highlight of the year and is designed to provide a system for recognizing the competencies developed by members through Health Science and Biomedical Science class instruction, related job training, and HOSA related activities. HOSA does not provide competition for competition’s sake. HOSA provides a national competitive events program as a means of recognizing those students who are willing to pursue excellence by preparing for competition and having the determination to attend a conference and participate in a competitive event, and Montana students have the opportunity to compete at both the State Leadership Conference (SCL) and, if they qualify, the International Leadership Conference (ILC).

This year’s SLC will be hosted April 3-4, 2024 in Billings, MT
