As Collegiate DECA's primary student brand ambassadors, executive officers represent over 4,000 members to a variety of key stakeholders, including fellow members, advisors, education administrators, business partners, public policymakers and more. Executive officers commit to serving Collegiate DECA for the year in which they are in office. While challenging, an officer’s term also brings personal and professional growth.
Completed applications are due to DECA Inc. by March 3, 2023.
Interested candidates can fill out the collegiate candidate guide form and will receive a notification email with a link to download the candidate guide.
Executive officer candidates will submit their application, along with all the supporting elements, electronically. The application materials still require signatures as outlined in the candidate guide. If elected, the executive officers will be required to physically sign all forms.
Please contact DECA's Leadership Specialist, Debbie Taylor, if you have questions about the election process.
