Join Alabama DECA
DECA members can begin their experience as early as middle school by enrolling in a marketing, finance, hospitality, business management or entrepreneurship course. They can retain their membership in DECA as long as they are actively pursuing courses in one of the content areas. As part of a high school chapter, DECA members can take full advantage of DECA activities while preparing themselves to be college and career ready upon graduation.
Students join DECA through their high school or middle school chapter, often advised by a faculty member responsible for course content in one of the related career areas. Chapters are recognized and chartered by the state association.
DECA membership is open year-round; however, members and advisors should note eligibility deadlines to participate in conferences and competitive events. The deadline for all DECA International Career Development Conference competitors is March 1.
