4. REMIND APP
At ICDC, we will be using the Remind app in emergency situations or for important announcements or changes only. For liability reasons, please be sure to opt in.

5. STUDENT ID
Students should have a form of photo ID (driver’s license, Washington State ID, ASB card, passport). We recommend they take a picture of their ID with their cell phone.

6. RECOMMENDED ICDC WORKSHOPS FOR ADVISORS
Please see the attached list of advisor workshops at ICDC. If any of the workshops fit with your schedule outside of your competition shifts, we encourage you to attend. Workshops that are especially recommended are circled.

7. ICDC JUDGES NEEDED
As we’ve shared, this year’s ICDC is the largest in DECA’s history. While this is amazing news for DECA, there is a need for more competitive event judges.
- Are you are bringing non-DECA advisors such as administrators, spouse, or family members? Please ask them to consider judging on Monday, April 29.
- For judge registration, Click Here.
- Please share this request on your social media platforms--you may have alumni in the Orlando area!

8. NEW COMPETITION RULES
This just in!
- Students are not allowed to remove their blazer during competition and may be penalized if they do.
- A cell phone ringing or even vibrating may result in a penalty, so phones should be powered off or left with a friend.
- If a student is using their cell phone for competition, they should put it on airplane mode.
