Written Project Assistance

DECA WRITTEN PROJECT ASSISTANCE

We will once again need and welcome assistance with penalty point screening & preparing the written projects for the judges and on Thursday evening,  March 16 beginning at 4:00 pm (judges are in on Friday). This will be held at the Hyatt Minneapolis in the Mirage Room. Board policy is that we strive to have at least 2 representatives from each District.  Does your District have their representative lined up? The more help, the faster it goes! And it’s a time to learn more about the written projects and network with fellow advisors too. Sounds fun doesn’t it?!

Additionally, we also welcome any of you to assist on Friday, March 17, 2017 with the written project judging also at the Hyatt.

Please let me know if we can count on your participation.

Professional Selling Clarification

DECA FLASH

Good day everyone!  This is a call special attention to an item that was in DECA Direct recently regarding the interpretation of the Professional Selling Event.

Guidelines for the 2017 Professional Selling Event Topic

Questions have been coming in concerning the Professional Selling Event topic for this year.

The topic for 2016-2017 is “you will assume the role of a sales representative of a drone technologies firm. A local real estate agent has scheduled a meeting with you because he/she has a desire to utilize drones to help his/her real estate business and wants to learn how your firm’s products and services can be beneficial to his/her business.”

Participants are not selling specific models of drones, but rather the use of drones to enhance the marketing strategies used in real estate sales. Drones are not required as part of the presentation but are allowed if it can be easily carried by the participant.

Participants should refer to the presentation guidelines for additional information.

Drone Use at ICDC

  • The Anaheim Convention Center regulations restrict flying drones inside the convention center.
  • Drones may not be flown outside either, due to FAA regulations and a no-fly zone in the Disney area, this includes all hotel properties.
  • The camera function of the drone may be demonstrated, but the drone must stay in non-flight status.

Should you have any questions please contact Ryan_Witzig@deca.org.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
