SkillsUSA Missouri’s State Leadership and Skills Conference allows you to experience thousands of career and technical education students, from high schools and colleges across our state, proving they’re ready for jobs in manufacturing, transportation, construction, hospitality and human services. SkillsUSA is considered a talent pipeline and a vital solution to the demand for a skilled workforce. Jobs are available right here in our state; they are waiting for people with the necessary skills. Those people are graduating from career and technical education (CTE) programs. CTE is learning that works for America. What sets our students apart is the integration of workplace and personal skills in combination with their technical skills grounded in academics. SkillsUSA is an integral component of CTE.
Join SkillsUSA Missouri for this year’s high-quality, impactful, and high energy State Leadership and Skills Conference! SLSC will give you an opportunity to showcase your skills as a future member of the workforce and a SkillsUSA Leader. This event is open to ALL SkillsUSA members. Ask your advisor how to attend!

What is the new candidate program?

The SkillsUSA Delegate Program engages chapter-identified delegates to represent their respective chapters in introducing, debating, modifying and voting on delegate items that may include organization bylaws, ad hoc committees and the SkillsUSA state officer elections.
Who can be a delegate?
A delegate must be a paid, registered member by the national deadline. You must also be a paid, registered SLSC attendee. Delegates can also be competitors, but schedules should not conflict for the most beneficial experience. State officer candidates may also serve as delegates and vote but must not be seated in the House of Delegates meetings during campaign speeches and problematic questions. Please contact Christy McElwain for more information.
What are the Ad Hoc Committees?
This year we will have three committees. Delegates will be divided into the following committees:
