Welcome to West Virginia DECA!
DECA prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges around the globe.  

The DECA chapter is to the marketing/business education/Career and Work Skills Training student what a civic or professional organization is to a group of businesspeople. Chapter activities are recognized as a part of the total educational program because they develop leadership skills, professional attitudes, business competencies, citizenship characteristics, and social growth of the individual.  DECA activities provide members with opportunities to serve in leadership roles, work in teams, and receive local, state and national recognition.

Officer Welcome
On behalf of the Chartered Association Officer Team, I would like to welcome you back to not only the new school year but also the DECA year ahead! This years WV DECA has so many new and exciting things in store! We are going to revamp the Fall Leadership conference giving it all new activities and even a new location! We are also going to send out monthly newsletters to keep everyone updated and aware of what's new. Plus, so many more things are going to make WV DECA even greater!

Also this year features so many amazing trips and opportunities, how could anyone ever want to miss out? First off, in October we will be holding our Fall Leadership Conference at the Glade Springs Resort in Daniels, WV. Then in November, the DECA Ultimate Power Trip is taking place in our nation's capital, Washington, DC. November is DECA month which will feature so many great activities and challenges that you don't want to miss out! Then only a few short months later the State Career Development Conference will take place in Charleston and then it will finally be time for ICDC in Anaheim, CA. 

So with all that being said, I encourage you to participate in DECA more than you ever have before. I hope you will partake not only in State Membership Campaigns, but also the National Membership Campaigns too, to make DECA bigger and better. The officer team and I would also like to encourage you to attend this year's Fall Leadership Conference and CDC, because they are going to be positively grand! This year is going to be spectacular and we would love for you to be a part of it! So please join in as many activities and trips as you can this year so you can learn to Own Your Future!

Best Wishes,
The West Virginia Chartered Association Officer Team
