Southern Region Update, January 2013
Welcome back, Southern Region! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and got some much needed rest. 2012 was certainly an amazing year for our organization. And with the launch of DECA Direct, the introduction of Google+ Hangouts and our Social Media Correspondent program, we are positioned to THRIVE in 2013, as well. Now it’s up to you to put these tools (and many more) to use to help your association THRIVE with DECA!
Career and Technical Education Month
With the new year, we’re reminded that CTE Month and DECA’s Advocacy Campaign are coming up in February. This is the time when all career and technical education organizations come together to spread awareness of the benefits of career and technical education as well as its associated student organizations (DECA!) CTE Month offers an excellent opportunity to share with your school, community and government officials why DECA is such an important component of career and technical education and how it has benefitted you personally. Throughout January and February, be on the lookout for updates and information that will help you effectively communicate why we all love DECA.
