The 2024-2025 DECA High School Division Executive Officer Candidate Guide is Now Available

Dec 5, 2023

Apply by March 1, 2024

As DECA's primary student brand ambassadors, executive officers represent over 230,00 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.

Interested candidates can fill out the high school candidate guide form and will receive a notification email with a link to download the candidate guide.

Completed applications are due to DECA Inc. by March 1, 2024.

Executive officer candidates will submit their application electronically along with all the supporting elements. 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 your executive officers if you have questions about the experience of serving as an executive officer, and please contact DECA's Leadership Manager, Debbie Taylor, if you have questions about the process or requirements.
