National Officer Election Process


National Officer Candidate Updates 

During the National Leadership and Skills Conference each year, SkillsUSA delegates from across the country elect 10 high school representatives (five at-large positions and five regional vice presidents) and five at-large college/postsecondary representatives to serve as student leaders for SkillsUSA as national officers.

These student leaders serve in a variety of roles throughout their year of service. As leaders, they serve as communicators, advocates and facilitators.  The high school and college/postsecondary national officer teams lead both national conferences: the SkillsUSA Washington Leadership Institute and the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference. The national officer teams also serve local chapters and teach members skills from the SkillsUSA Framework to help them become career-ready.

Being a national officer is the ultimate personal growth and student leadership experience within SkillsUSA. The overall programs focus on five key essential elements of the SkillsUSA Framework: responsibility, communication, teamwork, leadership and professional development.  The skills learned through the high school and college/postsecondary national officer programs will help these student leaders not only be successful in serving the organization, but also throughout their lives and future careers.
