Alumni NLSC Reminders
The Alumni Coordinating Committee of the SkillsUSA Alumni and Friends Association is requesting 160 total pins from each chartered state association. The pins will be used to create two pin sets for each chartered state association, six sets for the Alumni Association, and 25 will be given to the Courtesy Corps for their auction. Please drop off your pins at Alumni Headquarters by Tuesday, June 21st, at 10 a.m. Any chartered state association that does not turn in state pins will not receive their sets. The pin sets can be signed for and picked up at the state director breakfast on Friday.
Bosch Power Tools will, once again, help raise money for the Alumni Fund by hosting a dunk tank during the 2011 SkillsUSA National Conference. The dunk tank will operate Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in the Bosch outdoor exhibit area. All proceeds raised by the dunk tank will benefit the Alumni Fund. Chances cost $1 a ball or 6 balls for $5.
All proceeds will be tracked by state. The state raising the most funds for the alumni will be recognized by SkillsUSA and Bosch at the August state director meeting.
We seek state directors, state officers, state trainers, national officers or others who are well known in the SkillsUSA family who can bring out a crowd to dunk them! “Dunkees” must be willing to spend an hour at the tank. All proceeds from that hour will be tracked by the dunkee’s state. Tank shifts are first-come, first-served from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday. Dunkees should wear an appropriate swimsuit or clothes they do not mind getting wet. Towels will be available.
To schedule your state representative in the dunk tank, call Rebecca Langguth at Bosch at 224-232-2736 or email her at Rebecca.Langguth@us.bosch.com. If you have questions for SkillsUSA on this effort, please contact Niki Clausen at 703-737-0639 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
