UPDATE MEMBERSHIP PORTAL
As you return from summer break, make sure to update your advisor and chapter information in the membership portal, graduate your seniors from last year, and roll forward your remaining members. Here is the information on how to do so! Thank you!
CALENDAR, ADVISOR GUIDE, AND PROGRAM CHECKLIST
For your planning purposes, here is the WA DECA Calendar of Events, the WA DECA Advisor Guide, and a beginning of the year Program Checklist. Please let me know if you need anything else!
STOCK MARKET GAME RESOURCES AND DEADLINES
Even though the Stock Market Game started today, YOUR STUDENT'S HAVE UNTIL OCTOBER 25 to execute their first trade! That is plenty of time to research some stocks and make smart choices. Here are some important deadlines to note:
Diversification Deadline: Friday, October 25, 2019 @ 4 PM ET (Market Close)
*Please note that diversification must be maintained from this date to the end of the competition, December 13 @ 4pm EST. Team portfolios will be subject to periodic random review to confirm teams are meeting the diversification requirement.
Also, please read through the rules of the game VERY CAREFULLY as some of the rules have changed! Look for a PowerPoint overview coming by next Tuesday with some highlights of the guidelines, rules, and changes to the game!
FALL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE RESOURCES
As a new advisor, a great way to kick-off your year is to attend the Fall Leadership Conference taking place in Bellevue! Here is the conference website. Registration for first year advisors is complimentary and new chapter student registration is discounted by 50% - only $70! Look for some instructional videos coming in the next two weeks to assist you with the registration and paperwork process!
