Hello Nevada DECA! If you’re like me, you have a Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn and love to connect with members across the entire nation! My name is Liridon Poliku and I am thrilled to serve you as Nevada DECA’s first Social Media Correspondent. With innovative ideas, dedicated planning, and exciting involvement, I am confident that we can achieve our goals and THRIVE for the year ahead while networking with other DECA members!

Currently, I am a junior at Veterans Tribute Career and Technical Academy (VTCTA). My freshman year was the first year our school had DECA, and I’ve been involved from the very beginning of our chapter.  In addition to helping create the charter and constitution of our chapter, I am actively involved in Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and SkillsUSA. I’ve served at VTCTA DECA chapter president, and am in my second year as the CEO of my DECA, FBLA and SkillsUSA chapters. Over the past two years, I’ve qualified for nationals in FBLA and DECA, and gained experience in the social media background as I served as an FBLA Institute for Leaders Intern working with a wonderful team and utilizing social media outlets. My passion and dedication in DECA has ever grown.

Severing as your Social Media Correspondent, it is my goal to use Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites to highlight chapters, involve members, and create the “buzz” about Nevada DECA’s overall accomplishments. Wondering what your state officers are up to? Blogs, posts, pictures, and videos will show their dedication and passion serving you and what they have in store for Nevada DECA. I look forward to “meeting" many of you through our upcoming social media campaigns, and face to face at the State Career Development Conference.

Let’s begin our networking adventure!
