Hi there Florida DECA!
It’s Christina, long time no chat! This month I’m speaking to you guys about the membership campaign.
To start off, if you don’t know what Chapter Campaigns even are, DECA created Chapter Campaigns as a fun and different way to keep all members involved and engaged in DECA. The five campaigns are Membership, Global Entrepreneurship Week, Promotional, Community Service, and Advocacy. When completing all five Chapter Campaigns chapters achieve THRIVE level, chapters are recognized and rewarded for the efforts.
More specifically, I’m speaking to you about Membership Campaign. It has three requirements. In each type of member category (student members, alumni, and professionals) chapters are supposed to increase by 20 members. For example, if your chapter had 125 members the previous year, your chapter should increase to 145 members this upcoming year.
On December 1st, 2017 you’ll have to submit your membership campaign but if you want to go into further detail, DECA Inc. provides you with tons of resources via this link https://www.deca.org/high-school-programs/high-school-chapter-campaigns/ and there’s also very helpful DECA Direct articles such as http://www.decadirect.org/2013/09/29/chapter-campaign-registration-101/ & http://www.decadirect.org/2013/09/21/member-registration-101/ !
