GENERAL DECA UPDATES

- Log in to your membership portal and click on the red “Pay Invoices” tab to pay with a credit card. DECA Inc. charges a 3% fee.

- Or call 703.860.500 to pay with a credit card over the phone.

2. LATE PAYMENT POLICY / NEXT YEAR’S ALLOCATIONS

Washington DECA’s late payment policy states:

7.06 An Area will have its competitive event allocation reduced by one (1) if any of their chapters and/or state officers has an outstanding balance after June 1. (90) (14)

- Please look at the Balances Due reports attached (SCDC, ICDC, and Membership), and make sure your chapter won’t jeopardize your Area’s 2018-2019 allocations.

- Note: POs do not constitute “payment.” POs are a guarantee of payment, but June 1 is the final deadline for WA DECA and DECA Inc. to receive actual payment, as we end our fiscal year.

- Mailed payments will be considered “on time” if they are postmarked by June 1.
