BREAKOUT SESSIONS, WORKSHOPS, and EVENTS AT FLC

There is so much going on at FLC this year, we want to give you an advance look at the breakout sessions and the special workshops being offered, so you can start planning!

Attached is a document that includes descriptions of breakout sessions and the workshops. This will be posted online, and as more of the breakout session descriptions come in, we’ll add to this document. Also attached is a promo flyer for FLC.

  • Workshops. Some of the workshops have limited capacity, so advisors will pre-register students for those in FLC registration.
  • Breakout Sessions. Students and advisors simply go the breakout sessions of choice on a first-come, first-served basis. Occasionally sessions fill up, so encourage students be prompt.
  • Mock. Advisors will sign up their students for Mock Competition and Mock Interviews onsite at FLC check-in on 10/29. *My apologies—the FLC registration instruction packet includes an error stating Mock Competition is pre-registered online.

ADMINISTRATOR DAY

Attached is an invitation to your administrators to attend Administrator Day at FLC (including a brief overview of the day). Please invite them to come! We want to show them what great things your students are getting from the DECA Experience.

FLC – CHANGES AFTER YOU SUBMIT REGISTRATION

A little-known fact: Advisors, up until registration closes on October 5, you can make changes to registration and housing, even after you’ve hit the Finish Registration button.

- Simply go in to registration, make whatever change you need to make.

- Click on Finish Registration (again).

- You’ll get new invoices sent to your email.

HYATT AND CREDIT CARD PAYMENT

Good news! The Hyatt has agreed to charge credit cards for housing AFTER you check out. Some chapters were concerned, because their districts don’t allow payment before services rendered.

Please be sure the card you submit in the Hotel Credit Card Authorization form has a sufficient limit and is available to be charged for several days after 10/31.

TRAILBLAZERS PRO SPORTS CAREER DAYS

The dates are in!

Portland Trailblazers versus the Denver Nuggets – November 13

Portland Trailblazers versus the New York Nicks – March 6

Attached is the Pro Sports Career Day registration form, including the registration deadline for each game.

SCDC WRITTEN EVENT DATA

We are sometimes asked which of the written events typically have the most and the least competitors. Attached is a document showing the 2017 data, for your students’ decision-making pleasure.

PIPER JAFFRAY FALL TEEN SURVEY

The 2017 Piper Jaffray Fall Teen Opinion Survey was delayed due to Hurricane Harvey, but it is now live and ready for you to use in your classroom!

DECA members are the principle source for Piper’s survey, so it’s critical that all DECA members participate and share their voice. It is also great way for teachers and DECA advisors to engage their students in an independent applied learning activity that illustrates the importance of marketing research.

Both the survey and the survey report are dynamic tools that will help illustrate how marketing research is compiled, applied and consumed. This is a great lesson plan it is for market research and branding!

The Fall DECA/Piper Jaffray Teen Survey closes on Wednesday, October 4. Please help support this important partnership by incorporating this valuable survey into your classroom teaching.
