    Next Level Deca  

    If there’s one thing that’s true about DECA members, it’s our ability to surprise you. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, we find a way to break through to the NEXT LEVEL. Digging deep to overcome the odds is second nature to emerging leaders and entrepreneurs. Within each of us lives a ceaseless desire to exceed expectations and rise higher and higher to new levels of success. This is not just another year. This is our chance to break free of our routines and challenge the status quo. This is the year we push our limits and set our sights higher than ever before.
