Vice President of Membership Bio
James J Rogers is currently a senior at the University of Las Vegas, Nevada pursuing a Bachelor’s in Business Administration and Leadership. In his freshman year of college, he joined the UNLV chapter reluctantly after one of his close friends recommended him to the club. After becoming friends with DECA members, experiencing the learning potential of the leadership roles, and seeing how DECA greatly enhances one’s business curriculum, James decided that DECA was an organization he could build his future with.
After 4 years of being a part of UNLV Collegiate DECA, his network has grown and he has formed meaningful connections while developing his professional and business skills. The competitions and conferences are his favorite part of DECA, as he can network with business professionals and fellow students while demonstrating and growing his business skills.
Going into the VP of Membership position, and after formally holding the VP of Marketing position and the VP of Finance position, he hopes to continue growing UNLV DECA’s brand and building its membership. Furthermore, he hopes to assist UNLV DECA in continuing its relationships with student organizations and local businesses. He hopes to develop further the chapter as a place of growth and community for UNLV students interested in business.
