Do you mean business? Come join the DECA business competition!

The DECA business club is gearing up for another fantastic season of fun and competition! Last year we took over fifty students to the Provincial competition in Toronto in February, and half a dozen students from St. Benedict’s went to the International competition in the United States.

If you have a keen sense for business, marketing, advertising, or promotions of any sort of product, this club is the one for you! There are group categories for competition, as well as individual ones.

There is something for everyone, so consider joining us!

When we meet

Executive meets Mondays at lunch in room 214.

Competitors meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch in rooms 214 and 216.

Do you mean business?

The DECA Business Club is about to get ready for the fierce business competition in Toronto in February, but to get there we need you to start coming to meetings next week! There are plenty of business categories to choose from, with written and oral events, and individual and partner projects. Whatever you are interested in, DECA has a category for you!

Initially we will meet twice a week, in room 216, at lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For more information speak to Mrs. Ratz or Mr. Milardovic.
