State Executive Council 


Being a state officer is one of the highest honors a student can achieve as a member of SkillsUSA in Massachusetts. It can also be one of the most rewarding experiences for a student. If you are considering running for a state office (any SkillsUSA office, really) be sure you are doing it for the right reasons. Yes, it can lead to a great title, some travel and can look good on a resume, but holding an office means you agree to take on certain responsibilities and you agree to represent the organization on a state level.

We ask that potential candidates be dedicated to SkillsUSA, possess excellent communications skills such as public speaking (or at least be willing to learn), display professionalism, be able to work well as part of a state team, be responsible and able to handle one’s self appropriately in many different situations. As a state officer, you will learn a lot about yourself, make many new and long-lasting friends and have fun, too.


Be sure to check with your Chapter Advisor for additional requirements and paperwork our state requires for potential state officer candidates. Thank you and good luck!
