We aim to own our future, but why not own everyday? Everyday we should aim to achieve our goals and maintain positivity while doing it. You will face many obstacles in life. However, your obstacles do not define you, it's how you overcome them that defines your character. Make sure to start everyday with a smile! Wake up every morning with a goal in mind and plan to execute. As chapter leaders and future business professionals it is crucial that we not only push ourselves but motivate each other. You are the powerhouses of our organization and without you we wouldn't be the successful chartered association that we are. So today, I aim to motivate and inspire you to not just look ahead to tomorrow or the future, but make sure to OWN TODAY!

Pine crest high school is in Broward County. Being a new chapter can be extremely hard because of all the competition and limited resources available. It is also scary to be the “little fish” in the “big pond.” Because of this, I find it important to recognize these small new chapters.
Information about their chapter includes the following: Their new chapter advisors name is Mrs. Venne. They have over 75 members, and have had multiple (2) idea challenge entries. Additionally, they have a leadership board comprised of 2 co-presidents and then 5 vice-presidents (each for a different part of DECA. ex. Finance, Marketing). They have weekly/monthly after school meetings. They also have registered around 20 professional members, which is something that already running chapters have problems doing.
So, welcome to the family Pinecrest, we’re excited to see you at states! Good luck on your journey!
Here are 10 tips to owning your Role Plays!
East ridge has been a dedicated chapter for Florida DECA, so it is important that they are recognized. They put on car washes and various other events in order to fund-raise for the organization. In addition, their members are very dedicated to the organization. They attend conferences such as the Emerging leaders summit and the career development conference. They also participate in helping hands regularly. Thank you East Ridge!!
When dressing for DECA, it is essential that one dresses as if they are going to an interview. A blazer with a blouse and dress pants or a skirt is best for a girl. Also, a dress could be worn with a blazer. For men, a button down shirt with dress plants and a blazer is essential. When dressing with a partner, it is important that you match with your partner. Judges like to see that teams are cohesive and it makes your presentation appear better.
