GREETINGS FROM YOUR

STATE PRESIDENT

Welcome to the 2019 Minnesota DECA State Career Development Conference! Your state action team is truly proud of all that we have accomplished together this year. The road was difficult; we know that every one of you has put time and effort into getting this far. Whether you are competing in a group or as an individual, a roleplay or a written event, we as officers know that as the next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs that you are ‘Ready For It’! Cherish every moment of this experience as opportunities will be opening for you in many ways over the next few days.

You will have a chance to network with other Minnesota DECA members from all over the state, compete in your event for a chance to make it to Orlando, and partake in very fun entertainment! Don’t let this weekend fly by without a chance to soak it all up. We are fortunate to utilize this facility, so we ask you to be the respectful leaders we know you to be. Show thanks to those that make this happen; the hotel, judges, advisors, and other members all put in tremendous work to make this all possible. The officers this year are extremely excited to meet all of you and answer any questions you may have. Do not be afraid to come to us with any issues; offer advice, give recommendations, and be our friends! We value all your input. Lastly, we wish all of you the best of luck in your events! Represent Minnesota DECA with pride! Dream big, make connections, and have an amazing time. Sincerely,

Thatcher Sunday State President

MARKETING EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR 2019 STATE CAREER DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE

MARK FRITZ & MIKE HUTCHINSON Co-CEO’s – Founders

Lakeshirts / Blue 84 Mark Fritz and Mike Hutchinson are founders and Co-CEO’s of Lakeshirts, Inc. – an approximately $100 million dollar apparel and accessory manufacturing business in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, where they have run the business since 1984. From the humble beginnings of Mark’s parents’ basement, Mark and Mike have created an apparel production and decoration powerhouse. Today, Lakeshirts operates from a facility of over 300,000 sq. ft., employs more than 600, and serves more than 10,000 customers across North America. Through Lakeshirts’ entrepreneurial orientation, the company continues innovate and evolve. Some recent examples of this are the launch of a line of hats in 2015, stickers in 2016, acquisition of LA-based East Shore Garment Company in 2017, and launch of signs as well as the acquisition of Lakegirl in 2018. Beyond their leadership at Lakeshirts, they are also very active in philanthropic endeavors in their hometown and live the Lakeshirts’ value of Community. For example, they played a leadership role in the re-opening of Detroit Mountain Recreational Area (skiing and mountain biking) and the associated establishment of the DMRA 501(c) (3) which Mark chairs. Mark and Mike reside in Detroit Lakes, where often they can be found biking, hunting, skiing, out on the boat, and generally epitomizing the company phrase that “life’s better in a t-shirt.”
