The Chapter Excellence Program (CEP) honors chapter achievement relative to SkillsUSA’s framework of developing personal, workplace and technical skills. The framework actualizes SkillsUSA’s mission “to empower members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens.” It also serves as the blueprint for workplace readiness — our ultimate goal as an organization. By centering on industry demands, the framework builds the foundation for relevant and intentional student learning and employability skill development.

Brochures and Fliers
As a service to chapters, SkillsUSA has created some free downloadable promotional materials. Two versions of a SkillsUSA brochure are provided: a PDF download with national contact information, and a document in Word that can be downloaded and then personalized with your school information before printing.
Use these brochures to promote your SkillsUSA chapter during membership drives, open houses, community service projects, at presentations, or during SkillsUSA Week. Have members hand them out to prospective members with a tuck-in note inviting them to a fall kick-off meeting or other event. Use these at club nights or local community events to get the word out about your local SkillsUSA chapter and what you are doing.
