Florida DECA, it’s time to be EPIC!
The close of the 2015 International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida ushered in a new theme for DECA members worldwide. This new theme, Be Epic, has quickly become a sensation trending on social media while inspiring our members for the year ahead. Florida DECA members, chapter officers and advisors, I have one questions for you; how will you make this year EPIC? Will you seek higher levels of involvement within your community, reach new recognition for your chapters participation in the Florida DECA Annual Business Plan or have more winners on stage at CDC and ICDC? Believe me when I say that all of this and more is possible. The key is learning to make the most of every available opportunity, perhaps the meaning behind the phrase “Be Epic.” According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary Epic means a heroic story that is usually difficult and impressive. This is your year to mold and create with your actions that very story of today, tomorrow and this year that will one day become the story of years past. Will your story headline read “International Winner” or even “Newly-Elected Florida DECA Chartered Association Officer?” The opportunities are endless. You, and only you, are in control of this year. It is up to you to seize the moment and work to be where you want to be a year from now; so when “Be Epic” is retired and another theme takes it’s place you can look back on your year and realize “I did it all!” No matter where this year takes us, as Florida DECA members, I can guarantee you it is going to Be Epic.
Join the conversation right now on Social Media using #beDECAEpic and share with the world how you plan to make this year Epic.
