Dear Parent/Guardian, Your student has expressed interest in joining DECA, an organization of marketingstudents. DECA is a student-run organization that encourages students to develop leadershipskills, confidence, responsibility, understanding of the economy, and business skills. DECA isessentially a bridge between high school and the real world, because it holds competitionswhere students can compete for awards by attempting to handle role-plays of real lifesituations. DECA offers scholarships, internships and many more opportunities! Milpitas DECA is a part of California DECA and National DECA. The Milpitas Chapterstarted out 2 years ago as a brand new club, and we have expanded over the past 2 years. Wehave attended competitions at the local, state, and national levels, and won many awards. Wealso offer community service opportunities, which help fulfill the school’s required amount of20 hours of community service by senior year. Competitions are an essential part of DECA. Competitions usually take place at a hotel(with supervision by our advisor or parent chaperone), and last a weekend. These competitionswill require expenses, but the experience and knowledge that comes with it is definitely worthit! Before competitions, we will hold study sessions to help prepare students for thecompetitions, which consist of many events. Most events consist of a multiple choice test and arole-play, where the student will share his or her business knowledge with the judge. Thecompetitions we will be attending are Northern California CDC (January 13th-15th) and CaliforniaDECA 2012 SCDC (February 23rd- 26th). A membership due of $16 is necessary in order to register your student with CaliforniaDECA and National DECA. This is the bare minimum in order to become a DECA member. Adonation of $10 is kindly requested for our school club. This donation will assist with reducingthe fees for conferences, DECA merchandise, and other needs. Compared to Monta VistaDECA’s fee of $49, our membership is a great deal that will ensure your student the samethings, but at a lower price!
