1. 30-PAGE WRITTEN EVENT DEADLINE

If you or a student called me this week and asked about the 30-page written even submission deadline, I quoted the wrong date. I was looking at last year’s calendar. ☹* The correct submission deadline is 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 9.

2. 30-PAGE WRITTEN EVENT JUDGE REGISTRATION

WA DECA will open written event judge registration on Monday, November 20.

- The link will be posted on the SCDC website: http://teachdeca.org/wa-deca-scdc

- The link will also be posted on the washingtondeca.org website within the Partners tab: http://washingtondeca.org/judge-competition 

3. ENTREPRENEURSHIP INDIVIDUAL SERIES ACRONYM CORRECTION

There is a discrepancy between the DECA Guide acronym for the Entrepreneurship Individual Series Event and the acronym given in the WA DECA Advisor Guide. The correct acronym is ENT.

- Attached is the Washington DECA Overview and Guidelines for State Competitive Events document with the correction. 

4. MEMBERSHIP SUMMARY BY AREA

Attached are the membership numbers for each chapter, sorted by Area, as of 5:08 p.m. November 15.

5. ALLOCATIONS ANNOUNCED MONDAY

Based on the November 15 final membership numbers, I will calculate the allocations and email them to the Area Leaders on Monday, November 20.

This will include:

- Area competitive event allocations.

- SCDC chapter allocations for the Principles and the Personal Financial Literacy events.

- Voting delegate allocations.

6. MISSPELLED NAME CORRECTIONS IN MEMBERSHIP

If you find you’ve misspelled a name in membership, you can easily submit a change request.

- Log in to membership, and click on the little “person’s head” icon under the “request change” column for the individual whose name you’d like to correct.

- Complete the fields, and save.

- This is only for misspellings or mis-capitalizations, etc.
