Executive Council

Ohio DECA Executive Council is composed of the 12 members of the Board of Trustees and the seven officers. The council has several purposes. The most important job of all the members is to meet with their district teachers and students to gather feedback about Ohio DECA activities. The council also provides suggestions to the state advisor. Ultimately, though, the state advisor makes all decisions related to the organization. It is still important to hear the opinions and suggestions of our student members and advisors. The council meets twice yearly and discusses issues related to our conferences and our operations.

The membership of the Executive Council is here to help teachers understand and get involved in DECA activities. If you have questions about anything related to DECA events, contact your Executive Council members. They are elected and have chosen to be the contact for any teachers who want to participate in more events and see all DECA can be for students. You can also contact the state advisor for additional information.
