There is No "I" in Team

There is No "I" in Team

DECA members know the awful gut-wrenching feeling of sitting down to begin preparing for a role-play or reaching the table where you meet your friendly, yet somehow still intimidating judge. They know the angst of forgetting the one piece of their presentation that they had practiced a million times. If only there was someone who could help you power through! The nerves of competitive events can make even the most seasoned of competitors break a sweat, but you don’t have to do them alone.

With the wide variety of team events that DECA offers, you can ensure that you have a friend who has your back when it’s showtime. Whenever you need a helping hand, you can rely on a partner (or two) to walk alongside you to success. The range of the events that allow partners include:

  • Team Decision Making Role-Play

  • Integrated Marketing Campaign

  • Business Plan

  • Operations Research

  • Virtual Business Challenge

  • Chapter Project

So if you haven’t already, make sure to grab a partner and sign up for a team event. Even if you feel nervous about trying something new, we promise that you’ll have fun working on a DECA event with a friend. After all, John Maxwell once said, “Teamwork makes the dream work.” You never know, a partner may be the missing piece in your quest to get some DECA glass.
