Congratulations Florida DECA
As the year comes to a close for many schools across Florida, I would like to take this moment to say “Congratulations!” to all of our members and especially those who competed at the International Career Development Conference this past May. You’ve made it count throughout this past year, and now you are using our new theme “I am DECA” to show the incredible attributes that you have that make you unique. A year of testing, presentations, awards, traveling, and DECAing (this may not be an official word yet, but it will be one day) has proven your strengths, talents, and interests. Over the next year, there is so much to look forward to. I encourage you to spend these next few weeks of summer vacation to plan, study, prepare, and get a head start on the 2014-2015 DECA year. Florida DECA has some of the most hard working and amazing members and I am so proud of your accomplishments over the past year. To those who have competed in past years, keep up the hard work! To those who have never competed with DECA, I encourage you to get involved, study, and challenge yourself so that you might see the incredible benefits that DECA conferences bring. Hard work really does pay off, and I am confident that if you invest the time in DECA, you will see the incredible opportunities that will come your way over the next year. With new competitive events (check out the new events here: http://goo.gl/3IS9WR) and new opportunities that are coming your way over the next few months, I know that amazing things are sure to happen! Best of luck to all of you over the summer and as you begin the next chapter in your DECA lives.
