Dear Parents and Students:

Being enrolled in a marketing class provides your son or daughter with the opportunity to participate in a student co-curricular organization called DECA.  This is a great opportunity for your son or daughter to start building their resume.  

As a DECA member, they will be able to partake in field trips, leadership labs, competitions, civic projects and much more.  The skills and opportunities they receive will last a lifetime.

DECA assists students in developing skills and competencies for business/marketing careers, build self-esteem, experience leadership opportunities and engage in community activities.  Below are benefits they will receive by becoming a DECA member.  Joining DECA is a great way for them to start building their resume.

If your son or daughter is interested in joining DECA, chapter membership fees are $20.  If you are paying by check, please make it out to Waukesha West DECA.  Once their membership is paid, I will obtain their email address and send them upcoming DECA events via email.  Activities will also be posted outside my classroom door (rm C117).
