Presidents Council

Presidents Council

The Presidents Council was created to help build stronger chapters, create district unity, and ensure effective communication between the state association and local chapters. With regular and consistent communication, the state association will keep chapters informed of key state programs, events, and opportunities, and encourage greater participation and involvement. Most importantly, the Presidents Council brings local chapters together. Whether a new, emerging, or veteran chapter, the Presidents Council allows for direct, student-to-student communication and support.

Dear California DECA Chapter Presidents,

Hi! My name is Ramya Subramanian, and I’m honored to be your 2021-2022 State President. On behalf of the California DECA state officer team, congratulations on being selected to represent, lead, and serve your chapter in this coming year!

Whether virtual or in person, we hope your next year of presidency is going to be an incredible experience. Each of you hold the hefty responsibility to serve and represent your chapter, to foster and encourage growth, and to leave a lasting impact in your chapter’s history. Don’t be afraid to dream big in paving the way for your chapter’s future, and if there’s anything at all we can help you with, please do not hesitate to reach out for support!

Starting September, you all will have the opportunity to connect with chapter presidents from around the state during the monthly Presidents Council virtual meetings. You will be able to hear updates from Team 71 and share your own chapters’ wins and goals for the future. You’ll have numerous opportunities to network and receive support from each other this coming year, so we hope you will take advantage of them!

Once again, please feel free to reach out to any of the state officers at any point during the year! Whether connecting on social media or scheduling a chapter visit, we are more than happy to work together with you. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication; without leaders like you, California DECA would not be the incredible organization that it is.
