1. FORM B STATEMENT OF ASSURANCE AND ADVISOR RULES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

I’m so thrilled that I’ve been receiving these already from many of you. I hope it’s a relief to get it off your plate early. Thank you.

Deadline Reminder. This is due one time per year, and this year’s deadline is September 28. Important Note: Conference registrations will be blocked if we haven’t received a Form B from one or more of the chapter’s advisors when conference registration opens.

- Click here to initiate Form B.

- Click here for DocuSign instructions (this is geared toward you, the initiator).

- Click here for a tutorial on signing a document with DocuSign (this would be appropriate to share with your principal and CTE director).

Be sure to let your principal and CTE director know this is coming. Although you will initiate it, I created it, so it appears to come from Nancy Hanlon.

2. MEMBERSHIP

Next week I will have a promotional membership flyer for you to share with students, alumni, and professionals, including benefits of membership and the membership growth incentives.

- Competitive Event Allocations. On November 15 at 5:00 p.m., I will pull the member registration report and calculate the Area competitive event allocations. This determines how many students an Area can advance from Area competition to competition at SCDC.

- Membership Drives. Launch your membership drives early, and register the bulk of your members before that magic November 15 date.

3. FLC ADVISOR RECEPTION AND DECA INC. MEETING

You are invited to attend the Advisor Reception and DECA Inc. meeting at FLC. Please see the attached invitation.

4. FLC REGISTRATION GUIDE—LOOK FOR IT NEXT WEEK

Next week you’ll receive the FLC Registration Guide to give you plenty of time to review, ask questions, and create some buzz among your students!

- Registration. Registration opens 10/01/18 and closes 10/05/18.

5. 2018-19 CONFERENCE DATES, LOCATIONS, COSTS, AND DEADLINES

Attached is an updated 2018-19 Conference Dates, Locations, Costs, and Deadlines document that outlines the essentials for FLC, SCDC, and ICDC.

6. NEW AND EXPERIENCED ADVISOR IN-SERVICES

We’ve added more new advisors, even since last week’s email, so it’s worth repeating that Washington DECA is offering a fall in-service for both new (0-3 years of experience) and experienced advisors on September 14 in Bellevue. We’ve already received at least half a dozen registrations! These sessions have been approved for Clock Hours.
