Dues Flash – When Uploading a File

DECA FLASH
Here’s a little helpful insight if you are trying to upload a file to the new membership system.

From what one of our advisors found: “We figured out the issue with the bulk CSV upload.  The instructions for the online membership system Step 9A talks about the required fields.  Member Title isn’t included on this list but it is a required field.”  Some people also believe it works better with a PC than Mac when working with CVS files.  Hope this helps.

Please let me know if I can assist!

Good day everyone!

HOTEL TAX RATE
Last week you received an email that the tax at the hotel had increased as of October 1 meaning approximately .35 difference per room from what you have probably submitted to your district officers.

If you have not redone this, please don’t take the time – MN DECA will have any of those small shortages routed to our master so that you do not have extra work on your part.  I will work directly with the hotel to make certain this happens.

SESSIONS
We are busy securing outside speakers and it looks like it will be a great slate for your students to pick from for their 2 sessions of choice on Monday.

DECA RELATED TOPICS
WE do not have but a few at this point – if you would considering sharing your expertise, we will get you slotted in but without your help, this will not be an offered at FLC e.g. specific competitive event topics.

IF YOU NEED TO PROVIDE CREDIT CARD INFO ETC. TO HOTEL
I am attaching the form once again for your convenience.

ADVISOR CODE OF CONDUCT
Remember to submit your code prior to participating in FLC.  It is kept on file for the year.

Any questions, just ask!

Enjoy the soon to be weekend!
