Governance 

The Ohio DECA Board of Directors is the primary governing body for the organization. The make-up of the board consists of a talented group of educators, organization and community leaders and professionals.

Meeting regularly throughout the year, the Board of Directors establishes policies relative to the interpretation and implementation of the constitution and bylaws. The Board of Directors includes voting members and two ex-officio (non-voting) members that include the Board’s President and the Chartered Association Advisor.  Directors are elected in May of each year and traditionally serve three-year terms.
