DECA (Association of Marketing Students)

Advisor: Joe Wisotzke

DECA is an association of marketing students and has been around since the late 1940’s.  Students compete in a variety of different events ranging from individual event series to Marketing Team Decision Making Events.  DECA was created to help develop the future business and marketing leaders of tomorrow.  It is a great co-curricular activity that allows high school students to compete and learn about team building and leadership skills.  It is the largest student organization in America with over 219,000 members!!  The McGregor DECA chapter has had a chapter for the last six years and we attend three conferences throughout the year.  At the beginning of the year we attend the Fall Leadership conference in Minneapolis, MN.  At this conference our members learn what DECA is and go to various workshops that will help them develop the skills to be successful in their adult lives.  In February is the District DECA Competition in Saint Cloud, MN at the Crossroads Center Mall.  If the students do well at this conference they are eligible to attend the DECA State Career Development Conference in Minneapolis, MN.  Our chapter usually has around twelve active members every year and we have had a few of them make finals at the state conference.  DECA is great organization to belong to if you are interested in business and marketing.
