GENERAL DECA UPDATES

1. MEMBERSHIP BALANCES DUE

Attached is the list of remaining chapters that need to pay DECA Inc. for membership dues. Please ensure these are paid, either by check or credit card, by June 1.

2. LATE PAYMENT POLICY / NEXT YEAR’S ALLOCATIONS

Washington DECA’s late payment policy states:

7.06 An Area will have its competitive event allocation reduced by one (1) if any of their chapters and/or state officers has an outstanding balance after June 1. (90) (14)

- Please look at the Chapter Balances Due reports attached (SCDC, ICDC, and Membership), and make sure your chapter doesn’t jeopardize your Area’s allocations for next year.

- Note: POs do not constitute “payment.” POs are a guarantee of payment, but June 1 is the final deadline for WA DECA and DECA Inc. to receive actual payment that can be deposited, as we end our fiscal year.
