Interested in joining DECA?
Want to start a new Chapter?
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.
Does anyone know what time of year it is? Just take a look at a calendar! August - a time for school to begin. A time for meeting new people. A time for new activities and new experiences. But, more importantly for our student organization, it is a time to begin a new DECA year! The first scheduled event on the calendar is the 2015 WV DECA Fall Leadership Conference at Cedar Lakes in Ripley. This conference is a great opportunity for your to meet other WV DECA members and to learn more about the opportunities that DECA has to offer. As you plan your calendar this year, keep in mind the other conferences you can attend and the other student organization activities in whcih you can become involved.
As the 2015 - 16 theme stresses - Be Epic! Strive to make this year the year you gave it your all!
