Welcome to a year in DECA that will take us to the #NextLevel. As we begin the school year differently, there is one thing that remains the same - DECA’s commitment to our members and the passion of our outstanding DECA advisors. As we embark on this unique journey together, DECA continues to assist you in enhancing your classroom instruction and student learning. Here are a few new resources readily available to you:

  • Advisor Hub – an all-in-one place for you to access archived emails, important links and a variety of models and samples
  • Digital Recruitment Toolkit – a powerful resource for recruiting members virtually including videos, social media posts, and a variety of graphics and templates.
  • Digital Classroom – we will continuously curate classroom learning activities from DECA and our partners that can be used virtually and in person.
  • Professional Learning On-Demand – access more than 25 hours of on-demand, free professional learning from our new summer Advisor Professional Learning Conference. You can also receive e-mail documentation for CEUs.

Our members need our student organization – whether in-person or virtually – now more than ever. Our DECA advisors are some of the most innovative and collaborative educators. While it will take extra effort, we care about our members and we will all work diligently to give them an awesome DECA experience. Let’s all demonstrate teamwork as we triumph this year because we will be stronger together.
