Welcome Back and Get Ready to Make It Count in 2013-2014!

Welcome back to an exciting school year. This year's theme, Make It Count, is all about accomplishing goals, setting new ones and conquering the impossible. It's about shaking up the routine and making changes. Leading by example, we're doing just that at DECA, which will result in innovative resources and better members/advisor services!

Below are the contents of this year's membership packet, which will be disseminated exclusively online to give you the resources you want on demand.

And, some updates on a few other items:

Membership Pins
In late August, you'll receive a shipment of membership pins. As a token of our appreciation, DECA advisors will also receive a special #MakeItCount mousepad. If you need additional pins, please request them through the "Main" drop down menu in the membership system or contact Michael Mount.

DECA Guide
You'll notice the DECA Guide is now a comprehensive resource that previews many of DECA's programs, including the competitive events program. Didn't receive your DECA Guide? Contact Michael Mount.

DECA Direct Weekly
Each Tuesday, you'll want to make sure you receive these e-mails, full of DECA program news, chapter ideas and teaching resources. If you're not, please e-mail Janelle Scudder.

DECA Direct Online
Have you used www.decadirect.org? It's a great resource for chapter ideas, competition strategies, teaching tips and more!

DECA Posters
Posters will be sent in our first chapter packet, which will arrive to your classroom in late September.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or the staff if we can be of any assistance this year. We're here to help you #MakeItCount!
