Run for State Office

What Is A State Officer?

Being a SkillsUSA Illinois State Officer is the ultimate student growth and leadership experience. The skills learned through this leadership program will help officers to not only be successful in serving the organization, but also throughout their lives and careers.

Potential candidates should be dedicated to SkillsUSA, have a desire to serve the members of the organization, be able to work in a team and be willing to learn and grow.

“You should become a state officer because it gives you an opportunity to grow into someone you didn’t even realize you could be, and the courage to pursue your goals. It also gives you a family of officers that is simply irreplaceable.” – Loree, 2006-2010
