Chapters who attend FLC 2023 will bring home excited students and advisors who are motivated to develop their chapter's Program of Work (POW) for the upcoming Illinois HOSA year. 

Illinois HOSA encourages all active local chapter leaders to attend the Illinois HOSA (FLC). Through this conference, members have an opportunity to gain skills in leadership through keynote speakers, workshops, and information regarding competitive events offered.
