Running for State Office

Running for State Office

Imagine being up on stage in front of your closest friends and peers while your chapter watches on. Now imagine doing that at SCDC. Yes, that might be you on stage getting DECA glass, but it might also be you on stage at SCDC in 2019 leading the state as an Oregon DECA State Officer. Now rewind, no, not to now, but to January of 2019. SCDC is just around the corner and you’re so close to the State Officer Team you’ve spent the last year with. Rewind some more to the Oregon Leadership Institute where you’ll meet members and lead them through leadership development. Now rewind one more time, this time you can come back to right now.

State Office may seem like an impossible dream as you’re reading this, but it’s actually a lot closer than you think. This year at SCDC there are many positions available and you can run! This is a magnificent opportunity to give back to DECA while representing your peers. Before you get to campaigning at SCDC though there is some paperwork to fill out. It is on the Oregon DECA website, oregondeca.org under the “State Officer” tab.

This process is just beginning and Oregon DECA wants as many candidates as possible so if you’re a motivated and responsible who wants to represent your peers, and have fun doing it, ask your advisor about running for State Office. If you have any questions, feel free to email Brian Josephson at president@oregondeca.org or contact any other State Officers. We can’t wait to see you at SCDC this year!
