Georgia Statesman Award Test

Georgia Distinguished Statesman Award Test

The 2RE conference is here for the 2nd year in a row replacing SkillsUSA Georgia’s old Fall Leadership Conference. This conference is designed to cultivate chapter experiences, explore the SkillsUSA Framework and formulate a successful chapter plan. Each chapter will leave out with important takeaways that they will be able to launch back at school. 

Late Fee Policy- SkillsUSA GA will be implementing a new late fee policy for all SkillsUSA functions. If you register anyone late for any SkillsUSA event, there will be a processing and handling fee of $20 per registrant. We will only accept late registrants a week after the registration deadline. No exceptions. Conference materials (i.e. conference t-shirt, promo materials, etc.) cannot be guaranteed as SkillsUSA GA may have already placed these orders. Please help us by registering for all events on time! Thank you.
