Graduating Soon? Join the Alumni Association!


Everyone is welcome to join the SkillsUSA Alumni and Friends Association. Whether you are a graduating senior, a former member from years ago, an instructor, a school administrator, a parent or a business and industry partner, there will always be a role for you in SkillsUSA.


The alumni group is served by an elected, national executive committee and has the support of the national headquarters staff. The alumni are working on a number of initiatives including membership growth, awareness, gaining greater industry support and increasing activity at state or national conferences.


Members receive a link to the quarterly online magazine SkillsUSA Champions as well as a special alumni area of the website. Members are also alerted to volunteer opportunities at upcoming events, or we are glad to connect you to a chapter in your area. Joining the Alumni and Friends Association is the best way to keep in touch and stay up to date with all things SkillsUSA after you graduate!


Alumni members are also key to making our conferences and competitive events happen.
