A Step-by-Step Guide


Step 1

Find a teacher advisor to lead your chapter and initiate the registration process. All chapters experienced and new must start here each year.

Step 2

Assemble 10 members and register individually online. Don’t see your chapter on our list? Have your teacher Advisor finish Step 1 first.

Participated in ’18-’19 DECA year.

Step 3

Appoint an executive team to plan and lead the Chapter throughout the year. They will be your contacts for staying informed and training for competitions.

Your registration is not finalized, even if payment is received. Your Chapter Advisor must approve your application. Each school has various levels of commitment, student expectations, chapter size limits, etc. Failing to meet these requirements will mean that your application will not be honoured by DECA Ontario. If that is the case, and a payment was made, a full refund will be issued to the credit card holder.

There may be unrest this coming year and so DECA Ontario has put together a mitigation plan.  Adjustments may occur to this plan during the year as situations or the need to change arises.

Students need to be advised that Membership Dues will not be refunded if sanctions are in place after October 1.

NO cancellations, NO refunds, NO changes to membership after October 1.
