Arizona Collegiate DECA Selects SMCC Student, Dennis Williams, as the Arizona Candidate for National Executive Vice President
Every year Arizona Collegiate DECA chooses one member as the Arizona Nominee for National Executive Vice President. To be nominated, the candidate must complete an extensive application, submit their resume and go through a grueling interview by the State Executive Officers, Co-Executive Directors and the Alumni Board. This year, our very own SMCC Collegiate DECA Vice President, Dennis Williams, was selected as the Arizona Candidate. Dennis will now attend the International Career Development Conference in Washington DC from April 11th through the 14th. At the conference he will have a campaign team helping him every step of the way. His campaign will start with an exam to make sure he understands club operations, procedures and structure. He will then be interviewed by the national administrative staff, answer questions from voting delegates from other states and countries, make speeches and shake a lot of hands. By the end of the conference, voting will take place and four members will be chosen as the national executive officers. If chosen, Dennis will work on national issues facing Collegiate DECA. He will travel across the nation as a DECA representative to many different schools and to the national headquarters. He will be a voice for all community college students.
Dennis will need $1,000 for his campaign. These funds will go to booth rental, required DECA blazer, flyers, banners, posters, promotional giveaways, printing, decorations and supplies. If you are interested in donating to the campaign please contact DECA Club Advisor Barbara Gonzalez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
