DECA is a national organization for high school students interested in marketing, management, and business careers. To find more information go tohttp://www.deca.org/ or http://www.texasdeca.org/.
The local La Grange High School DECA Chapter was established in 1967. Annual dues are $25.00 and cover your local chapter, state, and national dues. Your one time dues fees enables you to participate in all of the chapter's many calendar of events for 2007-2008. Our fund raisers include the sales of DECA Daily planners and our Turkey and Dressing Dinner on November 9, 2007. Participation by all chapter members provides them with the opportunity to participate in numerous conferences and field trips throughout the year. Stay tuned for the upcoming events calendar.
If a La Grange High School student is enrolled in any of our Career & Technology classes, you may still become a memer of DECA by paying your dues of $25. and participating in all of the DECA chapter's activities.This new policy was adopted this year at our Marketing Educators Professional Improvement Conference and passed by the DECA National Board. With the increased core classes and graduation requirements, DECA acknowledges the need to override the previous policy of having to be enrolled in one of the Marketing classes just to be a member of the organization. We still, highly recommend that you enroll in any of our Marketing classes for the knowledge of the curriculum which prepares you for a successful year of competition.
DECA is in need of a great, motivated, and dedicated officer team for 2007-2008. Positions are open for President, Vice-President of Sales, Vice-President of Finance, Treasurer, Secretary, Reporter, Parliamentarian, Chaplain, School Store Manager, and Asst. School Store Manager. Sign-up early for these great leadership positions and build that resume for scholarships and community/school service.
