HOSA Patch Exchange Program

HOSA-Future Health Professionals is pleased to announce the HOSA Patch Exchange Program beginning at the 2019 International Leadership Conference (ILC) in Orlando, Florida, June 19, 2019. 

The HOSA, Inc. Board of Directors approved the Patch Exchange Program at the January 12, 2019 Board Meeting in Southlake, Texas, based on the recommendations of HOSA’s Task Force for Distinctive Symbols and Terminology and the approval from the 2018 Voting Delegate Assembly to amend the HOSA Bylaws to include updates to HOSA’s Emblem during the 2018 Business Session in Dallas, Texas. 

"We are pleased to offer the newly approved HOSA Patch and applaud the new design that reminds us that HOSA members are preparing to be future health professionals.Those pursuing a career in health recognize the limitless opportunities available to those willing to Learn, Lead, Serve, and Innovate!  HOSA is a wonderful lab to develop, practice and refine skills that are invaluable in whatever health profession you choose.  Wear the HOSA Patch proudly demonstrating your commitment to being a future health professional who has taken full advantage of all HOSA experiences and opportunities," explained Dr. Jim Koeninger, HOSA's Executive Director.
 

HOW THE PATCH EXCHANGE WORKS?

HOSA’s "Patch Exchange Program" will take place from June 19, 2019 (at the ILC) to December 31, 2019!

Exchange Program During the ILC.  Members and advisors are encouraged to bring as many old patches in your chapter’s possession to the ILC and HOSA will exchange all old patches for HOSA’s new patch at NO COST.  You do NOT have to bring the uniform – just the patch.

One old patch for one new patch = equal exchange! 

Members who are competing at the ILC may exchange their uniform patch after competition or prior to competition although please have a way to affix the patch on the uniform so it is official.

Exchange Program June 23, 2019 (after the ILC) until December 31, 2019. Patches can be exchanged with HOSA for $1 per patch if they are mailed to HOSA-Future Health Professionals, 548 Silicon Drive, Suite 101, Southlake, TX  76092.  Or patches may be purchased directly from Awards Unlimited, however, the cost is $3.80 per patch.

Starting January 1, 2020, HOSA’s new patch will be required on the blazer to qualify an official HOSA Uniform. Patches can be purchased from Awards Unlimited for $3.80.
