Recipe to Success
With this year ending and a new term of DECA leaders and experiences approaching, a pathway for success must be aligned. What is your chapter’s game plan for the next year? Team 58 would like for you to keep the ingredients of an EPIC Annual Business Plan in mind while you draw this plan out.
The Annual Business Plan is a menu of great activities for your chapter to choose from and complete in the following school year. Achieving these activities is not an easy feat, but as a Chartered Association, we like to recognize excellence, which would most definitely be displayed upon completion. The Annual Business Plan is designed around four key principles, the founding principles from which DECA was built on: Academically Prepared, Community Oriented, Professional Responsible, and Experienced Leaders.
(As described by DECA Inc.)
DECA members are ambitious, high-achieving leaders equipped to conquer the challenges of their aspirations.
Recognizing the benefit of service and responsibility to the community, DECA members continually impact and improve their local and broader communities.
DECA members are poised professionals with ethics, integrity and high standards.
DECA members are empowered through experience to provide effective leadership through goal setting, consensus building and project implementation.
How will your chapter exemplify these principles? Go to the drawing board and plan out your EPIC year by infusing these principles into your chapter’s activities. When the 2015-2016 Annual Business Plan is published in the next couple of months, be sure to find ways to tie your plans and goals to the activities described so that your chapter can receive recognition for the great things it does!
