Advisor Email - Statewide Advisor Training

Original Sent Date: August 1, 2019

Welcome Back!! 

I hope that you all are excited for this new school year, ready to meet your new students and start the road to Summer 2020! 

I wanted to share the details for our annual Statewide Advisor Training. We are returning to Austin again and all activities will be at the Holiday Inn Austin Midtown. We have had several events at this location, and it is awesome. We will start our morning with modular workshops, allowing you to choose the most pertinent workshop for you and your chapter. Following a networking lunch, we will have a workshop on DECA's new Project Management Events, the resources available to you, and how you can incorporate this into your classroom. We will wrap-up our day discussing a variety of topics in a round-table setting. All workshops, videos, and materials will be made available to all registrants following the conference.
