Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about submitting SkillsUSA membership dues:
All SkillsUSA members, including professional members, must pay membership dues.
See the list of state deadlines, fees and contact information. Your state advisor can also provide information on all upcoming state leadership and skill events.
Membership must be postmarked by March 1 for students to be eligible for national competition. Competing at the state level is a prerequisite for national competition, so you must also meet your state deadline.
SkillsUSA will continue to accept membership after the March 1 national deadline. The March 1 national deadline must be met by students who are competing or running for office at the national level.
If you use a purchase order for membership dues, the SkillsUSA online registration system will automatically populate the invoice which is then available for immediate printing.
Substitution of student memberships is not allowed. You may not drop one student from the membership roster and replace that student with another.
Dues cannot be refunded or transferred.
Submit a section for each career and technical education program in your school. A section consists of all students taught by a single instructor in one occupational area or program within your school. Together, these sections make up the school chapter.
To add students to your section simply return to the online membership site and register your additional members. A separate invoice for just these students will be generated.
SkillsUSA competitions begin at the local level and progress to the state and national levels. Students may compete at the state level if they are registered SkillsUSA members enrolled in an approved training program and who meet all contest requirements. Students must be state first-place winners and approved by their state association director to compete at the national level.
All advisors and school administrators should join as professional members in order to receive their own copies of SkillsUSA Champions magazine, catalogs, correspondence, scholarship notices and other materials.
The term 100 percent membership means that all students enrolled in your training program are national- and state-dues-paying members of SkillsUSA.
SkillsUSA publications cover programs, competition regulations, national conference and other activities. Your state office can provide information on state activities and upon request, assign an experienced advisor as your mentor for the first year. Phone numbers for all state offices are listed here.
