OTC (Officer Training Recap!)
Hello everyone! Team 59 is back from OTC and we couldn’t be more pumped. This weekend we travelled to Plantation Florida for four days where we spent countless hours working , bonding, and planning out our year. On the first day we had to get everyone’s spiffy uniforms organized, and trust me once they were on we never wanted to take them off! After that was settled we sat down and began learning everything there was to learn about DECA on the state and even the international level. During this time, we also began learning about each others passions, hobbies, strengths, and weaknesses. Then we christened the beginning of OTC with a family dinner at an amazing Italian restaurant. The next morning we were up at the crack of dawn preparing for our Team 59 professional photo-shoot. How fun! After that, it we spent the next 8 hours working to plan the year out to a “T”. There wasn’t one thing we didn’t discuss. Of course, we had our joking around times, but this day was dedicated to work and productivity. Later on however, we spent another family dinner together and followed it up with a heated bowling tournament. I think Justin crushed all of us! Haha! By the end of the conference, I had gotten to know each of my teammates in depth and realized I could not have asked for a better group to work with. I am so excited to take on the year with Team 59 and all of you by my side. When the time came to part from my teammates at the and of the conference, I knew that we were officially Team 59 and we were officially ready to Own Our Future!
