Business and Management

DECA, the Distributive Education Clubs of America, is a national organization composed of high school students, college students, and advisors. In addition to local chapters, there are also state-level and national organizations.

The DECA Leadership Club's general meeting takes place each Wednesday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. in Building 1, Room 1217.


It's easy to overlook DECA in the booklet of course listings, but it is a class and can be taken for 1-3 credits each quarter depending on your level of involvement. It's difficult to adequately describe the benefits of DECA as a learning tool. In the course of a year, each DECA member has the opportunity to serve as a member or chair of numerous committees, to become a club officer, to attend leadership conferences, to compete at state and international career development conferences, and to meet people from around the United States as well as Puerto Rico, Canada, and China. If you take advantage of all these opportunities, you will learn much more than you would expect and have loads of fun participating in DECA!


DECA students get involved in community service projects that most students do not and have a lot of fun in the process. A committee is formed for each project. Each committee has a chair that is in charge of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling the project. Chairing a committee is a great way to expand your leadership abilities and team building skills. Some of the projects in which DECA takes part include the Tree of Sharing, SCC Family Fun Night, Muscular Dystrophy Association Shamrock Drive, Earth Day Celebration, and the SCC Blood Drive. DECA also hosts the Regional High School DECA Competition.

DEC is known as an association of marketing and management students but welcomes students from many other areas of study. It is a fun learning experience that will also set your resume apart from all the others.
