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.

Updated SBE Guidelines
The chapter certification guidelines for the 2020-2021 school year has been updated and school-based enterprises will have additional options.
The Piper Sandler "Taking Stock with Teens" Fall 2020 survey is now live. Each spring and fall, Piper Sandler and DECA work together to conduct the bi-annual survey to gauge brand preferences and spending habits among teens. Share with your students as an intro to marketing research.
We are finalizing a new Advisor Hub that will include models/samples of branded forms so chapters can simply replace the DECA logo with their chapter logo and customize. We are in need of a few more examples. If you are willing to share your chapter's forms, please e-mail them to email@example.com.
Some examples of what we are looking for include:
Officer agreement form
Conference agreement form
Competition sign up form
Business advisory letter
Sponsorship request letter (based on an event)
Community service donation request letter
Internship request letter
SBE responsibilities agreement
Thank you in advance for helping all DECA advisors!
