Suggested Photo Opportunities

In 2014, SkillsUSA will hold its final national conference in Kansas City, Mo. This video shows what our FIRST national conference in Kansas City looked like in 1994, when the organization was known as "VICA: The Vocational Industrial Clubs of America." The conference moves to Louisville, Ky., in 2015, but the memories made over 20 years in Kansas City will last a lifetime for thousands of members.
