THINKING AHEAD TO AREA COMPETITIONS
Area competitions will be here before you know it. Two things to be aware of as a new advisor:
-Allocations for competition are based on your submitted membership by November 15, 2017
-Area testing is ONLINE and is scheduled and organized by your area representatives; testing dates and information coming soon!
Finally, look for some helpful resources on TeachDECA.org to not only get your students competition ready, but help get YOU field trip ready!
GREAT ADVICE FROM WA DECA ADVISORS
Last week, I had the great pleasure of visiting with Lynn Carey and Margie Denton from Clarkston DECA on how they generate enthusiasm in their programs. These lovely ladies shared from the heart their ideas on what makes their program work. Also included in the webinar are tips on Virtual Business Competition from Eric Peterson, Oak Harbor DECA and some highlights on how you can use social media to create excitement for your program!
