Postsecondary State Leadership Workshop

SkillsUSA North Carolina is hosting its annual Postsecondary State Leadership Workshop at Nash Community College November 8, 2019, 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM in the Continuing Education and Public Services Building, Room 8123. This one day conference will help SkillsUSA members find their “start button” through action-oriented, high-energy and motivational programming.

During the day, students will discover how to ignite the leader within and maximize their potential. Participants will spend time learning what motivates them and how to motivate others. Students will explore what it takes to lead effectively, not just at the school level, but in the workforce and beyond. Students will walk out with a plan that will allow their chapter to gain state-wide recognition and understand how to lead their local chapter.

Cost: $20 (lunch included), Registration Deadline: October 31, 2019
