Strategic Fund Raising and Program Growing Counsel
On March 5, we met with seven corporate executives to help us think strategically about what SkillsUSA should be doing to involve CEOs or other appropriate executives in SkillsUSA. We began our meeting with the Executive Advisory Group with an overview of the SkillsUSA program and accomplishments this past year and then took a quick look at the draft of our Vision 2020 document. Then we moved onto some of our priority funding projects to get the committee’s reaction. We received several recommendations on what are appropriate expectations for an alumni association and ways to develop staffing to carry out grants. Particular thanks go to executives of Adayana, Best Buy, Deere & Co., K2Share, Techtronic Industries (TTI), Snap-on Industrial, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Wes Bartlett, western region vice president of SkillsUSA Maryland brought greetings and stayed to participate in the meeting. It was great to have him here.
