Fall Leadership Conference

Fall Leadership Conference

November 1, 2022

Start the SkillsUSA year off strong by attending the Fall Leadership Conference!  

The conference will begin with an opening session which will set the direction for the conference, followed by workshops, lunch, and leadership development activities.  It is our goal that by participating in these activities each participant will leave the conference with the skills needed to have a successful year and actively participate in SkillsUSA’s programs.

 

All participants must bring at least 1 non-perishable food item for an activity.

All conference participants will be required to complete and turn in this fully signed form when arriving at any SkillsUSA Michigan conference.

To allow students to fully participate with the leadership activities, business casual attire will be allowed. Khaki (Docker) style pants (no cargo pants) will be appropriate for both males and females. Ladies should wear blouses, sweaters, polo-style, or collared shirts. Gentlemen should wear sweaters, polo-style, or collared shirts. Denim, t-shirts, hats, and cargo pants are not allowed.

Advisors’ Meeting and Assistance

There will be a special meeting for all advisors.  Professional development breakout sessions will also be available for advisors. Advisors will be assigned to sessions to monitor participation and behavior.  Each advisor is asked to assist with supervision at the conference. To keep the registration fee as low as possible, we have elected to use advisors in place of outside security.

 

Supervision

One (1) advisor must attend for each twenty (20) students.
