Those who are approved to attend should register for the SBE Academy based on the certification’s operation type, which is noted in the attached file. If you or your advisors have any questions, please let me know.

 

Looking forward to seeing you in Anaheim in just over 70 days.

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!

HYATT RESERVATION PROCEDURE deca
DECA Reservation Payment Form

DECA FLASH

Good day everyone!  This is a duplicate of information previously sent but may be helpful if you are at the point in your chapter’s participation in the upcoming state conference to work on the hotel aspect.

 

KEEP IN MIND THE FOLLOWING (READ CAREFULLY)

  • All reservations are made thru the state conference registration site.  It is extremely important that you not only hit SUBMIT on the conference registration portion of the process but hit SUMBIT as well as the hotel portion.
  • Once you hit submit, it does not go instantly to the Hyatt.  ALL housing will sit in our system until registration for the conference closes.  IT WILL NOT GET SENT TO HYATT until after that – so if you have changes to hotel needs prior to registration closes you will edit within the system.
  • DO NOT CONTACT THE HYATT WITH ROOM CHANGES/EDITS JUST YET – not until after the conference registration has closed.
  • Send your payment form/details to Hyatt when you have registered for the conference.  Be certain to cc:  Jackie

 

IF YOU NEED TO CONTACT HYATT WITH CREDIT CARD INFO ETC.

Please feel free to reach out to Josh Harp directly – #612-596-4634 or josh.harp@hyatt.com.  Please be patient for a response.  It is helpful if you cc me as well so I can assist if needed!

 

Any questions, just ask!

 

Enjoy the soon to be weekend!
