We’re looking for a few good members!
The National Courtesy Corps (NCC) is an elite group of high school and college/postsecondary students and advisors selected to represent their state delegations. These individuals are afforded the opportunities to build a network of industry and educational resources while gaining skills, leadership qualities, developing friendships and having fun in the setup, operation and tear down of the SkillsUSA Championships. The NCC is designed to be a learning/working experience.
Students, instructors and alumni requesting to serve on the NCC must be current SkillsUSA members. Each chapter sending students must also send an advisor who will assist with supervision of his/her students as well as serve as an NCC member. All participants must be approved by his/her state association director. The NLSC registration form must be completed with appropriate signatures and submitted by the state association director. NLSC registration fees for the NCC are waived. In addition, meals and housing expenses are provided. The only cost to NCC members is transportation to and from Kansas City.
This year, all NCC members will be housed at Park University. No participants will be allowed to stay in hotels with their state delegations.
NCC members are not allowed to compete, judge contests, run for office or participate in any state activities (during work hours) or perform any duties other than those assigned by the NCC Management Committee. NCC members typically work eight-hour days Monday through the closing ceremonies on Friday night. Finally, NCC members must agree to abide by the SkillsUSA Code of Conduct.
SkillsUSA will accept the first 150 qualified registrants, based on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage all states to consider sending students to this elite group. States are not required to conduct state-level courtesy corps competitions to enter students. For more information, click http://www.skillsusa.org/events/courtesy.shtml.
