3. HIRING OWN SECURITY FOR ICDC? LET WA DECA KNOW

If your chapter or district is hiring your own security for ICDC, please provide me with the details so we can inform the hotel security, the conference security, and our Management Team members.


4. TOUR TICKET PROCESS

If your tour tickets are currently pre-paid, your tickets will be included in your conference materials packet when you check in.

- You will need to count them at check-in to make sure you’ve received all you ordered.

If your tour tickets haven’t been paid yet, you will pick them up at the World Congress Center at the tours desk. To receive them, you will need to pay with cash or credit card. POs are not accepted.


5. ATLANTA SAFETY INFORMATION

Click Here to download the ICDC Safety Information document that we need you to share with your students and chaperones attending ICDC.


6. ICDC MEETING/PRACTICE SPACE REQUESTS

Attached are the meeting space requests at each hotel that Eliza has received so far.

- If you would like to reserve space to study/practice, please email Eliza to confirm the time.

- Big point to note: This is not a space to bring food in/have a chapter dinner. You will be charged a substantial handling fee by the hotel, if you do.

 

7. HOTEL ETIQUETTE

Some students have little experience staying in hotels and therefore may not be aware of the importance of hotel etiquette. Your students are going on a “business trip,” and their conduct at the hotel should reflect that. Click Here to download the Hotel Etiquette document that we need you to share with your students and chaperones, so everyone knows the expectations.


8. ICDC BALANCES DUE

Today was the payment deadline for ICDC. Attached is the list of unpaid chapters. After 30 days, a $25 late fee will be applied. All invoices must be paid no later than June 1.


9. SCDC BALANCES DUE

Attached is a list of the chapters with outstanding balances for SCDC. Since these are over 30 days past due, I will need to add a $25.00 late fee. Those will be issued next week.
