Parents

Do you have a student who is interested in marketing, entrepreneurship, finance, management or hospitality? Are you interested in learning more about how to start a chapter at your child’s school?

Meet with school administration and certificated faculty members at the school to learn about the local process of creating an organization at the school. It is important to note that DECA chapters can only exist as an approved organization at the high school with a certificated faculty advisor in place.
