DECA is an association for marketing education students. It represents the program of student activity known as co-curricuilar, rather than extracurricular, since DECA activities are designed to reinforce the compentencies taught in marketing and management classes.
DECA is a nonprofit, nonpolitical, consectarian career and technical student organization composed of voluntary members, with Marketing Education teacher-coordinators acting as advisors. Students elect their own chapter officers and deligates who have direct vote in their state association of DECA and in their national organization of DECA. All chapters are self-supporting, with members paying chapter, state association, and national membership dues.
DECA members learn to serve as leaders and followers and have the opportunity for state and national recognition that they might not otherwise receive. The local DECA chapter is the "showcase" for student achievement and progress and is the public relations areas of the Marketing Education Instruction Programs.
