2017-2018 National Theme

“The DECA experience isn’t just for one kind of member with one specific set of goals. The DECA experience is about exploring your options, discovering new paths and experiencing opportunities you never knew existed. With DECA, the possibilities for success are limitless.

From DECA’s competitive events and leadership opportunities, to career pathway conferences and chapter programs, there is a unique event, program, conference and campaign for every member to participate in. Being a DECA member allows you to discover your true ambition, realize your college and career goals and begin a journey of self-discovery.

When you utilize DECA’s endless resources, there is no limit to what you can achieve. So ignore your fear and push aside your uncertainty, because you’re about to embark on an incredible journey.

With DECA, your knowledge, skills, achievements and experiences will truly be limitless.”
