UMC DECA 2023-24

A personal campaign sponsored by UMN CROOKSTON DECA CLUB


Welcome to our DECA page! We are thrilled to embark on our second year as a chapter, ready to make a mark and "Experience the Difference." Your generous donations will power our growth and success, enabling our members to actively engage in regional and international competitions, attend enriching conferences, and spearhead impactful community outreach initiatives. With your support, we are fueling the momentum that propels both our organization and our members towards a future filled with promise and success. Join us as we "Experience the Difference" and unlock the potential of our aspiring business leaders.

How Your Donations Make a Difference

Conference Participation

One of the pivotal ways your donations make an impact is by enabling our students to participate in crucial conferences. The State Career Development Conference, scheduled for February 22-23, 2024, at the Willmar Conference Center in Willmar, MN, provides a platform for students to immerse themselves in real-life business scenarios through competitions and networking events. Additionally, we aspire to advance to the International Career Development Conference in April 2024, hosted in Austin, TX, providing an even broader arena for our students to compete and showcase their talents on an international stage. Your support will help cover essential expenses such as registration fees, lodging, flights, and transportation, allowing our students to fully engage and excel without financial concerns. 

Professional Development Workshops

Donations directly contribute to specialized training and workshops, enhancing the skills and knowledge of our members. These workshops are designed to prepare them for success in the highly competitive business world, equipping them with the tools they need to excel.

Community Engagement Programs

Your contributions also support essential community engagement initiatives like the Career Closet, a collaborative effort with the Career Services department on campus. This program provides students with access to professional attire, bolstering their confidence during job interviews, career fairs, and other professional events. By expanding this initiative, we aim to reach more students and increase their opportunities for securing jobs or internships.

Support Our Cause

We wholeheartedly invite you to contribute to our cause by making a donation. Your contribution is tax-deductible, providing an additional incentive to participate in our mission.
