DECA Meetings and Competition Eligibility

DECA Meetings take place on the second Thursday of every month in Room 2006, Ms. E's classroom.

We try to get started right after school and the meetings generally last for about an hour or so. It depend on what we are trying to accomplish.

Please come to the meetings. If you want to participate at Districts, State, and ultimately ICDC, you need to attend meetings. As discussed in our first couple of meetings, we are adding some restrictions to competition eligibility. If you are planning on competing, you must attend meetings!

Should I Join DECA?

The answer to that question is yes. You should join DECA. View a video on DECA. It was filmed last year at the International Career Development Conference in Orlando, Florida. We, Patriot DECA, were at that conference.

Our next meeting is on Thursday, October 8.
