The DECA Inc. Promotional campaign is such a great opportunity to improve your chapter. It’s all about marketing and promotion within and outside of your school. This video gives 4-5 ideas for each section. Remember, you only have to do two categories for each Campaign.
School outreach is outreach within your school. I picked some of the ways my chapter conducts our outreach. My ideas were posters, announcements, flyers, and luncheons. These are simple ways to promote DECA within your school.
Gathering 3 alumni success stories can be very easy under most circumstances. Most chapters have at least 3 alumni members who would be willing to draft up their DECA story. If your chapter has no alumni, make sure to connect with a bigger chapter who does. When engaging alumni, remember to be genuine and excited for better chances of getting responses.
The third tier to the Promotional Campaign is to conduct 3 community outreach activities. This is a great way to do some advocating and engage your membership. My ideas were social media, contact a public policy maker, attend events, volunteer for a cause, and connect with businesses.
Most importantly, BE LIMITLESS!
This week I had the opportunity to visit Jefferson High School DECA! I got an insider perspective on some of the things that go on in their chapter. After speaking with the members, I quickly realized that the involvement was exceptional. Nearly every member seemed to have a place in their wide array of activities.
They have a brand new student run enterprise called DECA’fe. This gives the members opportunity for real world experience, operating a business, implementing accounting procedures, etc. Jefferson also offers a class called VEI. This gives the members a chance to start a company, create a business plan, and assign job roles to participating students.
Jefferson is also very involved in competition. After speaking with Jack Filali, VP of Competition, we get a better glimpse as to how they prepare their members for competition.
Jefferson DECA is definitely a chapter to look out for. With all the real world experience and competition preparation, they are surely providing great opportunities for their members. We can’t wait to see what Jefferson DECA has in store in the upcoming year!
Hi Florida DECA! After an exciting state conference I hope you are well rested and pumped up for this year. As your newly elected chartered association Vice President, I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the organization with Team 60. I want to give a huge thanks to my family, campaign team, and all of the Florida DECA members who I spoke with at CDC.
Hopefully, you learn a little about me after watching my video blog. I have a quite a few hobbies, but DECA is by far the most important to me. I am a powerlifter, which is competing to lift as much weight as possible. Also, I have a collection of vintage record albums, 113 as of right now. I really like classic rock, but I still love modern music too. My favorite places to go are unique coffee shops. I try to find a new one every week.
I am so excited to connect with all of you. I hope you reach out to me. My email is email@example.com, and my Instagram is @ chaddoback
Let’s make this year our best Florida DECA!
