ICDC INFORMATION

1. ICDC REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 5:00 P.M. TODAY (THURSDAY, 3/14)

As I mentioned in an email Tuesday, I will be unavailable from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. today, but I’ll respond to any registration issues as soon as I’m able.

- Just to be proactive, attached is a “Registration Problems” report, which for the most part shows chapters that haven’t Submitted Housing and/or Submitted Registration. However, there are a couple of chapters with Event problems.

- Please review the list and see if there is something you still need to do to complete registration.

2. ADMINISTRATOR DAY INVITATION REQUEST

Administrator Day is a special ICDC event DECA has planned.

- If your administrator (principal, assistant principal, superintendent, CTE director) is going to be at ICDC, Click Here and request that an invitation be sent to him or her.

- DECA will mail a formal letter of invitation to your administrator.

- The invitation will require an RSVP from the administrator.

3. ATTRACTION/TOUR TICKETS DEADLINE

5. DRESS CODE AND RECREATIONAL ATTIRE

We’ve had inquiries about the Dress Code at ICDC when visiting attractions and participating in recreational activities in Orlando.

Recreational Attire is appropriate for activities such as swimming, utilizing the gym, participating in the DECA 5K, or visiting attractions. Neat, clean, and modest is key to positive representation.

6. ICDC WORK SHIFTS

Friday morning (3/15), Eliza will send an email to the SCDC Event Managers, asking for their ICDC work-shift preferences. On Tuesday (after Event Managers have a couple of days to respond), she will reach out to all advisors attending ICDC to ask for your work-shift preferences and will assign the shifts on a first-come, first-served basis.
