August Memo

Welcome to a new school year.  If you have not notified Ryan Witzig of your DA please e-mail her today.  You will find a check list for the year on this page.  Please visit often and keep up to date with what is going on in the state.  VA DECA adopted the new events offered by DECA Inc.  Please offer all events at your DLC this year.  This will provide your members with more opportunities to compete at the State Level and potentially at the International Level.  There has been a change in the VA Only Events.  These events are now only open to Freshman who are current members of your chapter.  Have a fantastic year and please contact me with any questions.   - Ryan Witzig, VA DECA Specialist
