DECA 2019-20 Communications:


Who belongs to this dynamic organization?
Any student enrolled in marketing education where there is a DECA chapter can join DECA. In classrooms throughout the country, students form their own chapters and elect their own officers. Marketing education teachers/coordinators serve as individual chapter advisors. DECA chapters are self-supportive, with members paying chapter, area, state association and national membership dues.

Why is DECA important to the business community?
DECA advisors and chapter members take an active part in the development and growth of the communities in which they live and work. Students learn, while still in school, the vocational understanding necessary to compete in marketing, management, business and merchandising careers. These career-oriented young people are actively involved in creative marketing projects directly related to the careers of their choice.
