Meet our Officers


Fall Leadership Conference gives students the chance to kick-off their DECA year with a leadership conference filled with action and opportunity. Professional educational speakers are hired to assist students in developing leadership and team decision making skills. State Officer elections allow for students to take democratic action, as they select the year’s State Action Team. All in all, the FLC is a great way to begin your year in DECA.

To be considered for state office all forms from the Officer Candidate 

Must be postmarked to Karen Bear by September 11, 2017.

The registration fee for FLC is $30.00 to include a Box lunch for all those registered. The Exel registration form which will be emailed to all Advisors by September 5, 2017 is due by September 11, 2017 with payment due at registration. No refunds after registration due date September 11, 2017.  

Your student's time is not well spent if attending FLC for only part of the time -- Stay until the end

The FLC is scheduled to be a full program of activities for your students. It becomes embarrassing for our members to be walking out of a presentation being given by speakers who have traveled some distance to share their expertise. It is also important to be part of the state election of Illinois DECA Officers. Get your money's worth. Stay for the entire program -- plan your bus schedule accordingly.

The major objectives of this conference include:

Leadership Development for the students in attendance
Election of the Illinois DECA State Officer Action Team

DECA Competitive event Role Play demonstrations
Begin your involvement in the DECA program
Network with other DECA members
Determine for yourself the worth of DECA membership
Begin networking for chapter improvement ideas
Brainstorm fund raising tactics
