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.  

The Ball is Rolling

The 2015-2016 DECA year has officially begun! The thirteen school represented at Fall Leadership Conference spent two days at the beautiful Cedar Lakes Conference Center in Ripley, WV learning more about what it takes to create an epic year of DECA by participating in workshops, games, and spending time with fellow active DECA members. With the Fall Leadership Conference already behind us and the registration deadline for the Ultimate DECA Power Trip in Austin, TX quickly approaching, opportunities are opening up around every corner and just waiting for chapters to jump in! We can't wait to see all of the exciting things that are already under way within your chapters throughout the state, so please don't hesitate to share epic activities with your regional officer. Also, keep an eye on @_wvdeca on Instagram to see what your fellow members are doing throughout the state. 

Make it a good day!
