Message to New Chapter Officers


On behalf of Team 63, congratulations to all newly elected chapter officers! Your state officers are eager to Make it Count for California DECA with all of you this year. Here are three quick tips that will help make your upcoming term memorable and successful!
Communicate thoroughly. Make sure your team communicates consistently so that all team members are aware of upcoming events and their responsibilities. Weekly or bi-weekly chapter officer meetings as well as a chapter officer Facebook group can be used to maintain communication throughout the year.
Invest in your team. Make sure you take time to get to know your fellow chapter officers. It will pay dividends!
Think outside the box. Challenge your team to do something original as a chapter this year! Do not be satisfied with the status quo.
Your California DECA state officers are excited to work with you this coming year. Please contact us and let us know what is going on in your chapter. We want to hear about the successes and challenges of your chapter so that we can recognize your achievements and help you Make it Count!
If your chapter officer team is interested in meeting with a state officer to discuss this upcoming year and would like help planning out the year ahead, please email us. We can either sit down in person or hold a video chat with your team. Our emails can be found at
We are looking forward to great year ahead for California DECA!
