Unveiling the New DECA Blazer Patch!

For the 2011-2012 term, DECA is on a mission to "Aspire Higher" and create new marks. This is a year of big changes, starting with a new DECA blazer patch.

Throughout DECA's history the logo has evolved four times, each change more clearly defining what DECA has become. This enhanced patch features the DECA Diamond logo created in 2010, as well as more defined colors that represent DECA. To view or purchase the new DECA patch, see page 18 of the 2011-2012 DECA Guide or see the attached picture.

This next DECA blazer patch bears the new DECA logo, and there are several opportunities for DECA chapters to acquire the new patches, in some cases for free.  The new patches can be purchased through the DECA Images website at http://decaimages.stores.yahoo.net/blazers.html.

In addition, the DECA Images website is also offering a blazer patch exchange program for this upcoming year. DECA chapters can have the opportunity to exchange their blazers' old DECA patches for the new one free of charge by achieving at least the “Peak” level in this year's National Membership Campaign, or by participating in the DECA Week or Global Entrepreneurship Week campaigns.  For more information, visit http://www.deca.org/events/membershipcampaign/.

On a final note, the new DECA blazer patch will not be required at the 2012 International Career Development Conference – any DECA patch will be perfectly acceptable for competition.  However, we encourage you to take advantage of this terrific opportunity to boast the new, improved DECA logo and switch to the new patch today!
