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.
- Promotional Video
- Chapter Campaigns
- Calendar of Events
- Conference Dates and Information
- Branding Guidelines
- Theme Logo and Creative Brief
- Recruitment Flyer: See For Yourself (Customizable PDF)
- Recruitment Flyer: College and Career Ready (Customizable PDF)
And, some updates on a few other items:
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.
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.

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.
