The 2RE conference is here for the 3rd 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.
We will not be offering any additional tracks for students in their third or fourth year.
Late Fee Policy- 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 until the posted late 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.
