Chartered associations are one of the most valuable assets in providing resources and leadership to help local chapters. While DECA provides guidelines for its comprehensive learning program, chartered associations administer DECA Inc. learning programs and offer additional programs that address specific needs of their membership.

The chartered association advisor administers the operations of the chartered association. State departments of education hold DECA Inc.’s charter for the high school division in all 50 U.S. states. College charters are held by either state departments of education or a non-profit corporation.
