Welcome to a new and fresh school year.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful summer and was ready to return to school.
A quick highlight from the summer of SkillsUSA Louisiana, was we brought
home a GOLD National Medal in Middle School T-Shirt Design courtesy of Lucinda Rae Palma from Bossier Parish School for Technical and Innovative Learning.
There were also nine students awarded SkillPoint Certificates . SkillPoint Certificates are industry-defined competencies achieved during the national championships, it is the pinnacle of achievement in demonstrating proficiency and workplace readiness in the student's occupational specialty.
Louisiana Advisor Town Hall
I want to invite all advisors and potential advisors to the Virtual SkillsUSA Louisiana Advisor Town Hall where Jeremy Boudreaux the Louisiana State Director will talk on multiple points and events of SkillsUSA Louisiana. Advisors will also be able to ask questions. This is only for advisors, teachers, and administrators. The Town Hall will be held on Thursday August 31 at 3:00pm and you can use the link below to RSVP for the event.
The SkillsUSA Membership Registration site is now open and active for Advisor and student membership registration.
It is always recommend that advisors join and submit their registration early on so that they will get the full benefits of their membership. Student members can be submitted at a later time.
Also a new feature is now active Member Self Enrollment and Member Self-Payment. To learn if this feature is right for you go to the Register site, and under the membership page click on the "Access Member Enroll/Pay" button. From this page you can view Advisor and Student instructions and watch a brief training video. Side note the students will only pay for National and State dues, if your chapter charges dues those will not be taken out.

At this years SkillsUSA State Directors Association Conference Louisiana was awarded the Bronze level award in the State Standards of Excellences.
