What is Courtesy Corps?

Courtesy Corps traditionally is a program offered to DECA  members during the day of competition at Career Development Conference. Members are able to assist event directors, judges, and BMITE staff in a volunteer capacity.

This year we have re-imagined Courtesy Corps for those members who wish to help serve Oklahoma DECA on February 10th.

2021 Courtesy Corps members will serve as social media promoters on February 10th. Courtesy Corps members will have access to official Oklahoma DECA social media posts and will post promotional content on their personal social media accounts following the marketing schedule. Courtesy Corps members will also serve as the official photographers for CDC 2021, by taking photos of their chapters or collecting photos of their chapter participants and submitting them to Oklahoma DECA and/or posting photos online and tagging Oklahoma DECA. More information and links will be sent to Courtesy Corps participants and their local advisor. 

Each chapter is allowed a maximum of 2 Courtesy Corps members.

Please note that signing up to be part of Courtesy Corps is a commitment at CDC – all Courtesy Corps volunteers are expected to complete their assignments on time and be a positive representative for Oklahoma DECA. Failure to complete assignments on time and in full could result in the chapter being disallowed from being in Courtesy Corps the following CDC.

How Do I Sign Up?

Sign up for a Courtesy Corps spot in the registration system when you sign up for competitions. You must be a registered DECA member who is registered to attend CDC to participate in Courtesy Corps.

How do I get my assignment?

Oklahoma DECA State Association Advisor, Paxton Cavin, will email Courtesy Corps members and local advisors prior to CDC.

What if I can’t fulfill my assignment?

Local advisors should notify  Paxton Cavin at paxton.cavin@careertech.ok.gov if a student is unable to participate.
