DECA Executive Officer Candidate Packet Now Available
The 2020-2021 DECA Executive Officer Candidate Packet is now available.
As our primary student brand ambassadors, DECA executive officers represent more than 220,000 student members to a variety of key stakeholders, including fellow members, advisors, education administrators, business partners, public policymakers and more. Executive officers commit to serving DECA for the year in which they are in office. While challenging, an officer’s term also brings personal and professional growth.
A few major changes have been made to the election process this year:
- Candidates will answer a series of short-answer questions, and their responses will be posted on www.decadirect.org once the official slate of candidates has been announced at ICDC.
- Candidates will no longer host campaign booths. Instead, candidates may create a promotional poster that will be displayed in the exhibit hall.
- Items of monetary value can no longer be given away; however, candidates may still provide a printed brochure or flyer to voting delegates.
- A new “Meet the Candidates” Session will be held on Friday, allowing attendees and delegates to meet the candidates one-on-one.
