A Letter To Those Thinking About State Office

Dear Future State Officer Candidates,

If you are considering running for state office, I’m certain that you truly understand and appreciate everything that DECA has given you during your time as a member. Now, it’s your turn to give back.

During my time as a state officer, I have grown professionally, socially, and, most importantly, personally in unimaginable ways. Through travel, conferences, campaigns, and workshops, DECA has taught me invaluable lessons about business, networking, and effective leadership. The last eight months have provided opportunities that I will definitely cherish for a lifetime.

However, these opportunities do not come without hard work. You must work diligently to prove to your fellow members that you have the potential to lead Oregon DECA in the right direction. Hopefully, you will reap the rewards of your hard work as a 2019-2020 State Officer.

But without taking the first step towards candidacy, you will never even have the chance to obtain all that this association has to offer. You have the potential to change Oregon DECA.
