1. WA DECA IS THE FOURTH LARGEST CHARTERED ASSOCIATION!
You are rocking membership this year, Washington DECA!
  As of today, we are at 11,441 members! Do you know, if we reach 12,000 members this year, we will gain another ICDC allocation?! 559 members to go!
  We are excited to recognize at SCDC on stage and on screen the many chapter membership achievements this year!

- Largest chapter per Area
- Largest percentage growth over all
- Largest percentage growth per Area
- Largest percentage membership per capita (percentage of the school)
- 100% membership (all students in business/marketing classes are members)
- Give Us Five membership drive (increase student, alumni, and professional membership by five over last year)

2. W9 FORM – WITH SIGNATURE AND DATE
I’m so sorry, but the W9 form I sent you last week to give to your school and CTE bookkeepers didn’t have the signature and date. Attached is the correct form.
- Please make sure your accounting personnel receive this, since our address has changed. We are one of your “vendors,” so they will need it.

3. MISSING FORM B STATEMENT OF ASSURANCE AND ADVISOR RULES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
We are still missing 28 Statement of Assurance and Advisor Rules and Responsibilities. Please look at the attached Form B Checklist to see if you’re on “the list.” If you think there is an error, please let me know.
- If a chapter is missing an advisor’s Form B on January 29 when SCDC registration opens, the chapter will be blocked from registering until we receive the form.

4. UNPAID FLC BALANCES
Attached is a list of the chapters with FLC balances due.
- After December 28, these will be 60 days past due, and a $25 late fee will be applied.
- If a chapter has a balance due on January 29 when SCDC registration opens, the chapter will be blocked from registering until we receive payment or a concrete payment plan.
- If you think this is an error, please contact me and I’ll research it.
