Dear DECA Friends,
DECA’s new membership guidelines are now in effect and they require your assistance! Please read the following and take the time to renew your membership for 2010. Camp and Individual memberships are no longer free (except for prior Lifetime Members).

If your camp directory information was previously entered, it will be replaced on the website once your membership dues are paid. You can edit at will.
If you have not already entered your camp directory information, you must enter your camp information under Camp Directory tab and then select, “add entry.” If you do not do this, you will not be included in the Industry Partners database and risk losing the donation of diabetes supplies.
You must also fill out an individual membership application and select “Non Member Staff” for yourself and then instruct everyone on your staff to do the same. There are no fees for non-members staff selections.
Thank you for your help with automating this important membership feature. We stand ready to assist you.
