state officers

Join the Delaware TSA state officers at the 2013 Leadership Lunch on Saturday, January 12, 2013! At the leadership lunch you will meet with fellow students who are interested in gaining leadership skills as well as the opportunity to network with students from other chapters from throughout the state and nation. Additionally, you will learn about the role and responsibility for becoming a state officer in TSA and what it takes to run Delaware TSA as a successful statewide student association.   Finally, you will be provided a closer look on how YOU can apply to run as a candidate for state office at this year’s State Conference.

All TSA members are welcome to attend, however space is limited to the first 50 members and chaperones (parents/advisors who respond).  Each chapter who attends should have at least 1 adult attend who can serve as a chaperone. Quickly talk with your classmates and send your RSVP to Sergeant-at-Arms, Jordan Siskin at jsiskin@detsa.org to attend Delaware TSA’s 2nd annual Leadership Lunch at the Duncan Center in Dover, DE on Saturday, January 12 from 11AM – 3PM. The Leadership Lunch will be fun and informative, so please join us! There is no cost to attend. Again, space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible.

 


Another year, another successful Fall Leadership Conference! This year’s was especially great, thanks to all who were in attendance. It was you that made the conference so memorable and exciting! The state officers hope you had a great experience gaining leadership skills with FOCUS Training and networking with members of other CTSOs!

During the conference, each chapter’s charity link contributions for the American Cancer Society were compiled, and so far, Delaware TSA has raised over $1,500! Congratulations to Appoquinimink High School for having the highest amount of charity link contributions: $706.15! This is great step forward for Delaware TSA’s goal of raising $100,000 for the American Cancer Society! Thank you for your contributions!

Delaware TSA’s November service project at Stockings for Soldiers was a success! Along with the state officers, members and alumni attended the event this past Monday, November 19 to help the organization stuff stockings to send to troops overseas. Pictured above is the state officer team, Concord TSA member John Fiorella, Delaware TSA alumnus Steven Vanderloo and Stockings for Soldiers coordinater Judy Travis. The state officer team agreed that volunteering at Stockings for Soldiers was a fun, worthwhile experience and a great way to get involved in our community.

Would you like to come to the state officer’s next service project? On Saturday, December 15, the officer team is planning to volunteer at Sojourners’ Place in Wilmington. Don’t forget to check the Delaware TSA website, www.detsa.org to keep updated. Stay tuned for more information!

Join the Delaware TSA officer team for their November service project! This month, the officers are volunteering for the 9th Annual Stockings for Soldiers Community Project on Monday, November 19 from 6:30PM – 9PM! The community effort of Stockings for Soldiers is to send personalized holiday stockings to our troops overseas. By volunteering, you become directly involved with bringing these brave young men and women in uniform a little bit of holiday spirit. Last year, Stockings for Soldiers shipped over 10,000 homemade, personalized stockings for troops overseas. Stockings for Soldiers needs as many hands as possible, so Delaware TSA, let’s get out there and join our community in sharing these gifts with our troops!

Stockings for Soldiers is located in Wilmington, DE, in Branmar Plaza at the intersection of Silverside and Marsh Road. Within Branmar Plaza, Stockings for Soldiers conducts its service in the empty office space that housed the Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate office, to the left of Walgreen’s/Happy Harry’s. For more information about Stockings for Soldiers, visit www.stockingsforsoldiers.org. If you would like to join the state officer team, please let Sergeant-at-Arms, Jordan Siskin know at jsiskin@detsa.org. You do not have to stay the whole time; any amount of time volunteered would show that the members of Delaware TSA care!
