Oregon Leadership Institute

Is your chapter looking for some excitement? Get excited because the 2011 Oregon Leadership Institute (OLI) is beginning on November 6! Oregon DECA will have the honor of hosting OLI with Oregon FBLA. Come to learn more about what’s happening with Oregon DECA and to learn more about Oregon FBLA! While you’re at the conference, be sure to attend the Oregon Leadership Conference Etiquette Dinner to enjoy a great meal with other chapters and to learn more about proper dining manners. Also, feel free to go to the OLI Dance where you can hit up the dance floor with your DECA and FBLA state officers!

Located in Sunriver, your Oregon DECA State officers will be there presenting a variety of workshops at OLI. For those interested in learning more about DECA, District II Vice President Emma Thooey and District III Vice President Fallon Wallace will be presenting a fun-filled workshop on DECA 101 for new and interested DECA members. If your chapter could use some tips on creating a better chapter, make sure you check out the Building a Strong Chapter workshop presented by Secretary/Treasurer Aliyyah Howes and Publicity Director T.J. Foltz. For DECA members new to DECA competition or are wanting some tips, President Saurabh Mahajan and District I Vice President Simone Smith will be giving some helpful hints during the DECA Competition 101 workshop.

This November weekend will be a wonderful experience for new and returning chapters

to meet new DECA members and to learn more about Oregon DECA. See you in Sunriver!
