Hey Florida DECA!
Today I’m going to talk to you about ELS expectations. Well for starters, this year’s Emerging Leadership Summit is October 26-28th in St.Pete’s Tradewinds Resort. This resort is an amazing time with many activities! The first thing to prepare for ELS is the attendance of your chapter! When advertising for ELS, the most effective way is to use members who have went to Florida ELS in the past. Remember housing and registration is due September 24th. The other important preparation is to advertise and collect Helping Hands. During the conference expect some competition preparation where there will be a little competition with prize medals! There will also be more workshops held by state officers on subjects to benefit your chapter. And don’t forget of course we have time to go to Busch Gardens with everyone at ELS! This is an inexpensive trip and amazing for new DECA members to become involved. I hope to see you all at ELS, if you have any questions contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Till next time Florida DECA!
Hey FL DECA!

ATTENTION ALL DECA COMPETITORS!!
There have been some major changes to this year’s Competitive Events, mainly with the Written Entries. First off there are no more 5, 11, or 30 pages 😨❗❗ They have instead been replaced with 10 and 20 pages (10 being in place of 5 and 11 pages, 20 for 30). This is very important to note when picking the right competition for you. There’ll be a lot more people doing 10 pages rather than 20 pages too, so keep that in mind. No matter what your interest is, there’s for sure a category for you. From virtual business challenges and the stock market game, to written event competitions and testing/role plays; there’s something for everybody.
Now specifically for first year members, there’s a testing category called the Principles of Business Administration Events, which are four different tests on the basics of finance, marketing, business management + administration and hospitality + management.
Use this info wisely as your pickining your category to compete in this year, good luck!!
