CHANGE DEADLINE FOR DISTRICT CONFERENCES IS DECEMBER 6TH 
For those of you that need to make name changes or drop students on your district registration, the deadline to change/drop is December 6.  No changes will be accepted after this date.  Any additions as of November 29 will result in a $10 change fee in addition to the registration.  Conference policies and guidelines can be found here. 

MEMBERSHIP DEADLINE CLARIFICATION 
You can continue to add members after the Initial Roster Deadline.  As you add members note two key things: 
1. Don’t forget to keep track of where you are in the membership tiers.  For example; if you have 24 students and 1 advisor (advisors count the same as students for purposes of total membership count) you are in the 1 to 25 membership tier.  If you add another student you’ll have a total of 26 members (25 students and 1 advisor) which will bump you up to the 26 to 50 member tier.  
2. A student must be in the membership system and the roster submitted to DECA prior to the registration deadline for any conference they will be attending.  So if they are going to the District Conference they need to be a registered member by the District Conference deadline.  If they are going to the State Conference they need to be a registered member by the State Conference deadline. 

Also, just as a side note, every time members are submitted, a new invoice is generated; they are NOT comprehensive of total membership submitted.  So each individual invoice will need to be printed out and turned in for payment.  Keep in mind that you, as the advisor, are automatically submitted when you first log in.  If no students are submitted at that time, that one invoice for the advisor is going to generate it's own invoice that will need to be paid.  Questions...email Ed or Kim!

Finally, March 1, 2019 is the official deadline for membership in DECA this school year.
