We are currently working with Eastern Michigan University and Lake Superior State University to build chapters.
Listed below are steps to become a Michigan Collegiate DECA chartered chapter.
- Find out school requirements to start a student organization. Often part of student life center, campus life or activities office. They may require you to draft a constitution (see sample as an editable word document).
- Contact the state Collegiate DECA office to start process and get membership portal established. First Time Chapter start here with Red Button on this link!
- Find a school approved advisor. This is a requirement for establishing a chapter within the state of Michigan as well as for national conference travel. Requirements are minimal - Enter dues, oversee funds, act as a liason between school and chapter, and travel with student to state and international career development conferences. Provide advice as needed.
- Recruit students and hold an informational meeting. A state officer or the state Executive Director is available to attend in support of your chapter.
For more information contact, the officer team or Tanya Blehm.
