Fall Leadership Conference

November 8, 2021

Lansing Center, Lansing, Michigan

Come join us in Lansing for our annual Fall Leadership Conference!  Students and teachers can learn valuable leadership skills that they can take back to their school and lead their local chapters through a successful school year.  SkillsUSA Michigan advisors are encouraged to bring their local officers and any other students interested in learning how to demonstrate their leadership abilities.

Students participate in sessions that guide them in developing team building, public speaking, communication and community service skills, just to name a few.

FOCUS Training, a Wisconsin-based leadership development company will present a workshop for students that emphasizes communication skills, teamwork, innovation, organization and many other skills to help students become successful business leaders.

Advisors also participate in sessions geared at having a successful SkillsUSA chapter and CTE program.

The Fall Leadership Conference gives members the opportunity to meet and network with fellow members, develop leadership skills and gain insight on many other SkillsUSA activities!
