To make your year as #Limitless as possible, here are a few ways to help you get ready, get set and engage.


Take a look at all the upcoming opportunities and events your chapter can take part in this year, such as attending the educational conferences like ENGAGE or the International Career Development Conference!

Has your chapter prepared to recruit the incoming freshman who can’t wait to start college, meet new people and find new interests? Planning on how to recruit new members on your campus can be kind of difficult, but the tips and ideas from fellow members and DECA staff on will be an invaluable resource for you this fall.
