Association Directors

Empowering Future Leaders: SkillsUSA State Association Directors

Overview

SkillsUSA state association directors are responsible for overseeing all school chapters within their state or territory. They ensure that the SkillsUSA program is being implemented effectively, providing students with the necessary skills and training to succeed in their chosen career fields. They empower students and educators to excel through hands-on skill competitions, leadership opportunities and professional development.

Association directors also plan and execute exciting state conferences and special events, providing a platform for students to showcase their skills and talents while connecting them with industry leaders and potential employers. They are instrumental in shaping the future of career and technical education in their state or territory, and their role is vital in the success of the SkillsUSA program nationwide.
