  • welcome successful professionals to guest speak
  • run and manage the school store
  • organize events in and out of school

How do I join?

It's too late to join for the 2018-2019 school year, but we'd love for you to get involved in other ways!

  • Take any business and marketing class, like:
    • Marketing 1 or 2 (yearlong DECA class)
    • Sports, Entertainment and Hospitality Marketing
    • Interactive Media (new for 2018-19, counts as MV art credit)
    • Entrepreneurship
    • Fashion Marketing
    • Personal Financial Management
    • Wealth Building
    • Business Management
    • Personal and Business Law
    • Word Processing for College
    • Business Applications
    • Web Page Design (counts as MV art credit)
    • Fashion Marketing
    • Photoshop for Publishing (counts as MV art credit)
  • Talk to your dean to enroll in any of these great courses! 
  • If you are in DECA class, competition will be integrated into class curriculum. If you are in a different business class, you'll want to join DECA club, our out-of-school competition-based DECA preparation club, which meets once a week October through State or Nationals. DECA club is usually for 9th and 10th graders only, but exceptions may be made. Talk to the advisor, Ms. Allard.
  • Pay a $13 fee to officially join national and state DECA (we get none of this fee- it all goes to the associations) 

Want to get involved without taking a business and marketing class? 

Though we'd love to see you in class, you can get involved without taking a class by: volunteering to help with chapter projects, supporting the store by making purchases, or participating in our events like charity week!
