HOSA affiliation dues are $20 per student annually. Conference fees are: Regionals- $30/student (advisors free), States- $75/person, ILC- $90/person. 

Our main way of communicating with advisors and HOSA leaders is through the HOSA Synapse, our e-newsletter. Our YouTube channel is also a great resource with weekly videos of The HOSA Way with Mark & Sam.
