An international organization for students in marketing education programs, DECA provides avenues for personal and professional development in the areas of leadership, social skills, vocational understanding and civic consciousness. In its 54th year, Missouri DECA provides services to approximately 8,200 students enrolled in Marketing and Cooperative Education programs throughout the state. 
Those services are an integral part of the instruction that motivates students to increase their leadership and creative abilities, reinforce competencies developed in the curriculum, and encourage a healthy competitive spirit. One of the most visible components of the student organization is the competitive events program. Students may participate in individual series events, marketing research projects, chapter team projects, leadership academies, and entrepreneurship projects.

Competition is organized so that members initially compete at the district level. Over 5,000 DECA members participated in the 12 district competitive events conferences in the current year. Approximately 600 representatives of business and industry served as judges and determined which students qualified to represent their district at the State Career Development Conference in March. Over 1,300 students and advisors participated in this three-day conference that featured dynamic general sessions, leadership seminars, entertainment, a rigorous competitive events program, and an exciting Awards Session.

The final step in the competitive events program and the highlight of the DECA calendar is the International Career Development Conference. With 15,000 delegates attending the conference from all 50 states, Washington, D.C., Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and two Canadian provinces, competition is at its finest.

See Mr. Steve Cross (Room 102) for details and membership. Membership is limited to Marketing I and Marketing II students.
