Each year, Iowa HOSA holds an annual statewide leadership conference that brings student members together with industry, post-secondary, and community leaders in a competitive showcase that recognizes both technical skill and leadership development. The conference includes competitive events, the election of officers, and a recognition ceremony. In order to help students prepare for the State Leadership Conference, the District Leadership Competition is designed to allow student members to participate in online tests to practice competitions.
