DECA Marketing Club

  • DECA (formerly known as Distributive Education Clubs of America, also known  as Delta Epsilon Chi on the college level) is an international association of students and teachers of marketing, management and entrepreneurship in business, finance, hospitality, and marketing sales and service ( It is one of ten organizations listed as Career and Technical Student Organizations by the United States Department of Education.

    The International Career Development Conference (ICDC) is available to all qualifying DECA members. The ICDC is held in a different city every year.

    More than 56 years ago, DECA organized around an ambitious goal: to improve education and career opportunities for students interested in careers in marketing, management and entrepreneurship.[citation needed] Membership includes 180,000 students and advisers
    throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Guam and Germany.
    DECA is divided into four divisions: High School, DEX/ΔΕΧ (Delta Epsilon Chi), Alumni, and Professional.

    The High School Division is composed of individual chapters (DECA organizations within one school). Areas and Districts are grouped under a state association. State associations are grouped together as regions.

    Delta Epsilon Chi, is organized in much the same way as High School DECA, except that chapters are by college, not high school. The ΔΕΧ membership is also much smaller than high school. The Collegiate Division of DECA called ΔΕΧ (DEX) was formed in 1970. This division functions as a student/professional division. The Canada Division is directed toward future marketing professionals.

    The Alumni division is for former DECA members, giving them a way to participate in DECA and give back to the organization after high school or college.

    The Professional Division is made up of individuals who have become business or marketing professionals and are interested in Canada develop the next generation of business and marketing leaders.
