For the 2023-2024 year, your Executive Officer Team is excited to announce our official Program of Leadership!

Ensure members are prepared to advocate for DECA and Career Technical Education. Provide members with the proper resources and tools, such as a CTE month newsletter and our Chapter Campaign and Impact Award programs.
