Attention New Members!

Calling all students interested in joining DECA! DECA prepares individuals for the future, and you as a new member can take use of the many great resources DECA has to offer. To really get a grasp of what DECA is, let us look at a few fast facts. DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management.  This mission statement is carried out throughout the four main national regions: Western, Central,North Atlantic, and Southern Region.

With 185,000 high school members from 5,000 chapters, DECA connects students on a global scale. Speak to your advisor or chapter officers to find out how to register for our State Conference in February and International Conference in April. There are also great Fall opportunities such as the Oregon Leadership Institute or District Competitions. Ask a fellow member about these conferences and check out last month’s article that highlights these conferences.

It is never too early to start thinking of ways to prepare for competition or ways to build your confidence as a leader. New students can hit the ground running by taking advantage of the many resources and conferences that Oregon DECA has to offer. We hope to see you as you prepare for a successful career in DECA!
