The Presidents Council was created to help build stronger chapters, create district unity, and ensure effective communication between the state association and local chapters. With regular and consistent communication, the state association will keep chapters informed of key state programs, events, and opportunities, and encourage greater participation and involvement. Most importantly, the Presidents Council brings local chapters together. Whether a new, emerging, or veteran chapter, the Presidents Council allows for direct, student-to-student communication and support.
Dear California DECA Chapter Presidents,
Hello! My name is Leo Shao, and I have the absolute honor of serving as your 2023-2024 State President. On behalf of Team 73, congratulations on being selected to represent, lead, and serve your chapter in the coming year! Let’s make this year the most successful one yet and continue California DECA’s rich history of interdisciplinary competitive and community success.
No matter what happens, we hope your next year of chapter presidency is one to be remembered. Each of you is the standard bearer of your chapter, fostering and encouraging growth to leave a legacy on your chapter’s history. I strongly urge you to plan big in paving the way for your chapter’s future, and if there’s anything at all we can help out with, please do not hesitate to contact us for support or questions!
Starting in September, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with chapter presidents from all our chapters across the state during our monthly Presidents’ Council meetings. You will be able to hear updates on DECA matters from Team 73 & share your own chapters’ successes and accomplishments for the future. You will have numerous opportunities to network and receive support from your fellow presidents this year, and we hope you take advantage of such.
Once again, please feel free to reach out to any of us on Team 73 this year. Whether connecting together on social media or meeting for a chapter visit, we are more than happy to work with you on whatever topics. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication; without leaders like you, California DECA would not be the incredible organization it is!
With utmost support,
