ICDC/SCDC UPDATE:

Attached are the state assignments and advisor shifts at ICDC. Please contact Eliza if you have questions.


2. ICDC AIRPORT TRANSFERS DISCOUNT

If you’re planning to shuttle from the airport to your hotel, DECA has arranged discounts with Pick Me Up Dart.

- Go to decadirect.org/2018/01/19/deca-discount-travel-information/.

- Under Airport Transfers, click on DECA 2018.

- There, you’ll see the details for arranging transportation.

- Use the custom code DECA18 to receive your discount.

 

3. SATURDAY A.M. MATERIALS PICK UP

If your chapter is arriving after 9:00 p.m. on April 20, you will have an opportunity to pick up your conference materials from a WA DECA staff member or volunteer the next morning, April 21, from 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. in your hotel lobby.


4. ICDC HOTEL COMPETITION PREP SPACE

Contact Eliza if you would like to sign up for a block of time in your hotel’s meeting space, where you can meet with your students and practice competition.

- The hotel doesn’t allow you to bring in food and beverage for these meetings (as in a group meal), and the hotel has the right to charge you, per item, if you do.


5. HOTEL SECURITY

Each hotel will have a security officer on site from 10:00 p.m.-4:00 a.m. each night.

- While curfew is 12:30 a.m., hotel quiet time is 10:00 p.m.

- Security and Management Team will address any noise issues after 10:00 p.m.

- No student should be out of their room between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.

- Advisors, feel free to set your own (earlier) curfew, but do not keep your students out past 12:30 a.m. for any reason.

 
6. SCDC BALANCES DUE

Attached is the list of chapters that have past-due balances for SCDC.

- I have called and emailed reminders to bookkeepers. Please make it a priority to assist in getting these invoices paid, as they are a month past due now.


7. ICDC PAYMENT STATUS

ICDC registration and housing payments are due by April 12. Attached is a spreadsheet showing payment status.

- If you’re not on the spreadsheet, you are paid in full (thank you!).

- We have paid the registration fees and are paying the hotel balances this week, so it is very important that we receive your reimbursements on time.
