Hello Arizona DECA!
The challenges that stem from these unprecedented times require us to come up with innovative solutions to deliver robust and collaborative programming and experience for you, our members. Therefore, the State Officer Team is thrilled to announce the Arizona DECA Slack platform for the 2020-2021 school year!
Slack is a communication platform that is designed to organize and facilitate collaboration. For reference, it is comparable to Discord, in which a server is comprised of different channels that pertain to unique categories of information and discussions. Through a number of different channels like Resources, News and Updates, our goal is to establish the Arizona DECA workspace as a central hub for all chapter officers to access relevant content, brainstorm ideas, and network with fellow officers from across the state. The possibilities are truly limitless with Slack, as it integrates with a multitude of third-party services, including Google Calendar and Zoom, for a more comprehensive experience.
As mentioned, the Arizona DECA Slack will be available to all chapter officers. Within the next couple of weeks, you will be sent an email inviting you to join the platform. As dates and details are finalized, additional information will be provided in the coming weeks.
Ultimately, the success of the Slack platform will be entirely dependent on everyone remaining consistently proactive and engaged. The Arizona DECA State Officer Team will share the tools and resources you can utilize to guide your chapter to the #NEXTLEVEL. However, that is not the only goal we have in mind for the Arizona DECA Slack. We also want to take advantage of the opportunity to forge connections that transcend the computer screen. A productive conversation is not just one person speaking to an audience, but rather involves a group of people contributing equally.
With that said, I challenge you to take part in our discussions, begin new discussions, and follow up after the discussions have concluded. By the end of the year, your network will grow exponentially and Arizona DECA will be more united than ever before. One Diamond, One Family!
Yours in DECA,
Thong Vo | District 2 President
