COMPETITION ALERT! COMPETITION INSTRUCTIONAL AREAS 

For those of you that are 1st and 2nd year advisors, Washington DECA does not use the instructional areas released by DECA Inc for area competitions.  With the exception of Area 6, your area representatives will release the Instructional Areas and Performance Indicators being used in advance of your area competitions.  In addition, your allocations will be sent out later on in November after membership registration closes on the 15th.  For more details, please contact your area leaders.  

AREA TESTING INFORMATION 

With the exception of Area 9, all area testing is done online.  Your area representatives will be sending out the details for your specific test closer to competition.  

WEBINAR TOPIC THIS WEEK FEATURING STATE OFFICERS 

We are really excited about this week's Washington DECA webinar topic as it is very time appropriate.  Join several members of your Washington DECA State Officer Team as we discuss "How Washington DECA Gives Back"!  Here is the link to log-in and the time is 3:30 on Thursday!  

COMING TO TEACHDECA.ORG; TIPS AND TRICKS WHEN ORGANIZING A FIELD TRIP 

One of the most time consuming and frustrating jobs for a new (and continuing) DECA Advisor is organizing a field trip. There are lots of hoops to jump through, so TeachDECA.org has created some tips and tricks that will hopefully lighten your load and make the whole trip organizing process a little easier.  Look for these resources to be uploaded by the end of the week to Unit Four Experience DECA; password is unite. 

THIS WEEKS DECA DIRECT HIGHLIGHT; I'LL PUSH YOU; BE INSPIRED AND SUPPORT MDA 

As a complement to this week's webinar, we encourage you to pass along this opportunity for your members to not only be inspired, but give back to MDA by attending this movie at your local theater.  Offer participation points for attending with their ticket stub as proof!  A complete list of theaters is linked, along with a summary of the plot for "I'll Push You". 

Happy Halloween from  your Chapter Support Team!
