Missouri DECA Special Activities
With Missouri DECA's strong partners in the marketing industry, our chapters and members are given many opportunities that are beneficial to their learning and success. These opportunities align with the points of the DECA Diamond.
- Missouri ACTE Legislative Day
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 — State Capitol, Jefferson City
Build awareness for Career and Technical Education, Marketing and Cooperative Education, and Missouri DECA among members of the General Assembly by attending the Missouri ACTE Legislative Day. In celebration of Career and Technical Education Month in February, DECA members can promote Missouri's premier marketing and cooperative education program to state legislators. An executive state officer may attend a proclamation signing with the Governor.
- National Entrepreneurship Week
