National Courtesy Corps
Attention state association directors…We continue to work hard to improve the National Courtesy Corps (NCC) experience at the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC). However, we need your help to make this all work. Missouri has committed 85 of the 150 members we need for 2010. The remaining number will come from the rest of the states. Last year, we only received about 30 members from outside of Missouri.
As you know, the NCC is an important part of the success of the NLSC. If you have members who have been part of the NCC, please have them continue. If you don’t, please encourage them to become a part of this special group. Below are some of the changes for 2010.
- This year, we will not start the move into Bartle Hall until Thursday evening. Because of this, we will need the help of the Courtesy Corps sooner. Therefore, we are asking the members to arrive on Saturday (6/19/10) by 5:00 pm so they can start to work on the floor of Bartle Hall on Sunday (6/20/10).
- Last year, we had for the first time a team of Massachusetts students who were part of the National Courtesy Corps doing research at NLSC. The data we collected was very useful to SkillsUSA. Again, we will need eight students with good communication skills to be part of this survey team. If you have students who may be interested, please contact Bruce Potter.
- All NCC participants will be housed at Park University Campus in Parkville, Mo. This campus is about 12-15 minutes away from Bartle Hall, and traffic is not heavy en route.
- This year, we will enlist the help of our adult NCC participants by assigning them duties and responsibilities as they work with the students. For these advisors, there will be a session to review their duties and responsibilities as they work with the students.
- We will develop an individual schedule for each student and advisor listing work assignments, breaks, free time and other items that go along with their time at the conference.
- Dorothy Loges from Missouri will serve as the NCC chair again, and we look forward to working with her.
