With the beginning of DECA’s competitive season just around the corner, Washington DECA attended their school’s annual Club Rush event in order to interact with potential members. The event was held on September 12th and 13th and offered an opportunity for new members to learn about the possibility of joining DECA to gain confidence, problem-solving skills, and real-life business experience.
