Hello Florida DECA welcome back from ICDC!
Annually, over 18,000 members, advisors, professional members and alumni qualify to attend the International Career Development Conference. This year we had the highest attendance at ICDC that we have ever had! With the conference being in Anaheim, California, there was an attendance of over 21,000!!!
Whether you're an advisor, you're competing, attending an academy, campaigning for an office position or you're just there for the ride of a lifetime, ICDC is something that you will remember for the rest of your life.
This year, Florida DECA was fortunate enough to have over 12 members make it to finals in their competitive events. With one of these members being Annika Mursten, Placing 1st in the whole world in EBP!!! Congratulations to Annika and all of the other International Finalists!!!
Each year Florida DECA also hosts a Florida night. This year Florida DECA night was held at Medieval Times in which we all had a team and the teams competed in jousting to see who would win! We also were given dinner in which we had to eat without utensils to follow along with "Medieval Times"
Also, a big congratulations goes out to the newly elected Executive Officer Team!! We can't wait to see what you accomplish this year!!
Florida DECA cannot wait to see everyone again at all of the conferences this upcoming year, especially ICDC which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia!!
Each year DECA Inc. Releases the Chapter Campaigns and how to reach Thrive level within your chapter on each of the Campaigns. Today, i will be talking specifically about the Community Service Campaign. To complete this campaign you need to do 2 out of 3 of these things.
1. Get 75% of your chapter to participate in the campaign.
2. 1 or more Community Service Activities
3. 1 or more forms of publicity or promotion
This is a very easy campaign for your chapter to complete.
Team 60 has come up with a great way to complete this.
If your chapter participates in the fall drive of Helping Hands you can use that for this campaign.
Say your chapter has 100 members. If you have 75 of those members to participate in the activity, you have completed the campaign. Just use one form of publicity or promotion and then you're done!
This is just one of many ways that you can complete this campaign. Its probably one of the easiest ones to complete!! Team 60 cannot wait to see what you all can do with this campaign!!!
Good luck this year at ICDC, I can't wait to see you all there. See you later, Florida DECA!!
Hey Florida DECA!
Im Logan Mills, one of your new Florida DECA Vice Presidents! Just a few things you should know about me, I am 16 years old and my birthday is April 12. I live in Altamonte Springs right outside of Orlando! I am a junior and attend Lyman High School. As of extra curricular activities, I have been a member of my chapter for the past 3 years. Although i don't play a sport right now, I used to swim for 8 years and I was state recognized for my personal times. I also placed 3rd in state my freshman year for wrestling. In the future, I do plan on going to college and majoring in entrepreneurship. I want to open up a restaurant some day with my best friend (we already have plans about it all).
As for DECA, Thank you so much for voting for me & making my dreams come to reality! I cannot wait to see what this year has to offer for us. Meeting all of you at the State Career Development Conference was amazing! I do believe this year will be one of the best years yet & Team 60 will definitely leave Florida DECA better than we found it! I cannot wait to see you all #ownyourfuture at ICDC in Anaheim, California!
