This handbook is designed to assist every Michigan DECA member. It is hoped that our members will find this handbook a valuable resource in providing needed information and suggestions in carrying out a chapter’s program of work throughout the school year. The purpose of this handbook is to provide information which will aid chapter advisor(s) and chapter officers in organizing, planning, and conducting chapter activities which will be meaningful and beneficial to all members, and at the same time be of service to their local schools and business community.

The handbook represents a compilation of materials, suggestions, and ideas submitted by DECA members, chapter advisors, and National DECA on how a DECA chapter functions to be of maximum service to its members.
