Clark DECA Charges Ahead!

This month’s chapter spotlight goes to Clark DECA! This year, Clark DECA has about 90 members in their chapter and is preparing to ASPIRE HIGHER in the year ahead!

One of the fall highlights for Clark DECA was attending the Fall Leadership Extravaganza in Las Vegas. Chapter President Daniel Yakov Dinev said that the chapter "had tons of fun networking and learning" at the event. "We especially loved Amy Gallimore’s presentation on leadership and etiquette," said Daniel. “Curtis Haley also impressed us with his competitive events presentation, which we recorded and took back to show the rest of our members."

"Now," Daniel says, “we are all looking forward to competing at the State Career Development Conference in February”. He says, “our first-time competitors are even more excited to go to their very first conference.”

To prepare for state conference, Clark's chapter officers examine performance indicators and multiple-choice test questions and also have members perform sample role-plays during their meetings. Chapter officers have even created several lesson plans that teaches certain concepts in marketing, business management, accounting and hospitality.

In the next few weeks, the chapter will be having their first “Competition Fundraiser," a mock DECA competition within Clark High School. Clark DECA certainly has some new creative ways this year to get their members pumped and ready to win medals at this year’s State Career Development Conference!
