The 1940s was a transformative time in American history. The decade saw the transition from wartime to the next generation of tradition, achievement, and imagination. And in 1946, the marketing organization first known as Distributive Education Clubs of America was founded.
Both America and DECA have evolved in the 75 years since. Inspired by an entrepreneurial spirit of innovation, DECA members from across the Western Region will arrive in Scottsdale, Arizona in November 2021, ready to celebrate the past 75 years of DECA while looking forward to its bright future. After all, TOMORROW BEGINS TODAY!
