Advisor’s Council

The Advisors’ Council can be thought of as the Management Team for Michigan DECA. The Council reviews policy and makes decisions ranging from Membership and Conference Management to Competitive Events and State Officers. To be eligible, an individual must be a chapter advisor and have attended the last two state conferences as a chapter advisor.  Each school district is limited to one person. Members meet three times year and coordinate an event at the state conference.
