Chapter Campaign Registration 101

It’s time to get your chapter recognized for their outreach efforts. The best way to do that is through DECA’s five chapter campaigns.

Many of you have already completed numerous activities to recruit members, promote your program and serve your community. In fact, Alcoa High School (Alcoa, Tenn.), is the first chapter this year to submit their promotional campaign! Their idea of mailing an Alcoa DECA postcard to all incoming freshmen helped them recruit more new members than ever before.

While the submission deadline for the promotional, Global Entrepreneurship Week, community service and membership campaign isn’t until November 29, it’s not too early to submit your report if you’ve completed your activities. For the Advocacy Campaign, submissions will take place in February, once you have completed your activities during Career and Technical Education Month.

Follow these easy steps to submit your campaigns, and your chapter will earn the recognition it deserves. Please note the online form does not allow you to save and return. We recommend that you complete your submission in a Word document and then copy and paste your entries in the online form.
