2018-2019 National Theme

Life moves pretty fast — one day you’re a freshman just beginning your high school journey and the next thing you know you’re standing in line waiting to receive your diploma and walk across that stage.
Are you ready for college? Deciding what major to pursue, working on group projects and delivering presentations to your professors and peers?
Are you ready for your career? Knowing what career paths interest you the most, going on interviews and networking with business professionals?
Are you ready for the rest of your life? Juggling assignments, leading teams and making tough decisions every day that impact those around you?
Thanks to DECA, you’re READY FOR IT.
You’re ready to pursue the major you know you’ll enjoy because you’ve already experienced industries like marketing, finance, business administration and hospitality. You’re ready to get your dream job because after a DECA role-play, a job interview is a walk in the park. You’re ready to lead a team to success because you’ve already been a chapter or association leader. You’re ready to take on any challenges life throws your way because you were a DECA member.
If you want to prepare yourself for a future filled with opportunities and achievements, then you’re ready to join DECA.
So, the question is, are you READY FOR IT?
