Board of Directors

The SkillsUSA Maryland Board of Directors consists of twelve elected SkillsUSA professional members who are responsible for promoting and advancing the interest of Career & Technical Education (CTE) in schools across the state of Maryland through participation in the development of professional, leadership, and technical skills in SkillsUSA Maryland.

 

The Board meets four times per year with a primary focus of supporting the membership organization and preparing for the SkillsUSA Maryland Fall Leadership Conference and the SkillsUSA Maryland State Championships.  The Board of Directors welcomes input from the organization’s membership. Members may contact any Board member to request that the board consider an issue or request.

 

Board members serve a three-year term with four positions up for re-election each year. The lead advisor from each active chapter will receive a ballot by April 15th with ballots due approximately two weeks later. New board members will be notified by May 1 and will assume their positions at the first meeting following the SkillsUSA Maryland State Championships.
