Another reason to join this club is for the information you will learn, that you will be able to apply in the real world. And the last reason to join DECA is for the fun atmosphere and competitive spirit.¬† Arya Buddha, a DECA member, says¬† “my favorite part about DECA is the chance to take certain classes with the same small group of people that i network with in DECA.”

In DECA you will compete in many competitive events that are over a certain topic. You can chose from individual and team written events. There are also individual series events and management team decision making events. Lastly, there is also chapter written events and projects.
