About DECA

DECA is "AN ASSOCIATION OF MARKETING STUDENTS."  It is an academic organization, not a club.

When do the DECA members meet?

Students who are enrolled in a Marketing class will meet during class. All other students will meet during common lunch on Thursday in room M207.

When and where are the contests?

The DECA district contest takes place on November 10th at the Lory Student Center at CSU. The State DECA Conference is in February at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. Students may choose to attend a "practice" competition on October 5th at CSU for an additional $35.00 fee.

What are the actual contests?

A specific list of events is available in the Marketing Department, or you may select "competitive events" on the DECA link provided below.

Are there fees for DECA?

Yes, Participation in DECA only is $50.00. Participation in both DECA and FBLA is $80.00. If students plan to attend the optional "practice competition" called the CSU Invitational on October 5th, there is an additional $35.00 fee. There are also costs for the State and National Conferences if students qualify. Fundraising opportunities may be available to offset some of the travel costs for state and national qualifiers.

Are there any requirements to participate? 

Students must be enrolled in a business, marketing, personal finance, or PaCE course during the 2018-2019 school year.

What are the Fundraisers?

Students may choose to sell Old Chicago Pizza Palz, King Soopers reloadable gift cards, Denver Nugget tickets, work Snack Shack shifts, Purple & Gold Silent Auction Dinner, and other fundraising activities as needed. 

Who do I contact if I want to join?

We hope you decide to become an active member of Fort Collins Business Leaders.


More than 185,000 high school members participate in DECA through 5,000 chapters in all 50 states and 8 countries.
