LAKE ORION, MI (January 27, 2015) — Genisys Credit Union, which provides services to anyone who lives or works in the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, recently partnered with the Michigan DECA club to sponsor their Annual DECA District 7 Career Development Conference, recently held at Lake Orion High School.

Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) is a professional level organization for high school students interested in business related fields. The district conference, which serves as the first level of competition, gives students the opportunity to compete in chosen categories and apply their marketing and business related knowledge. Students are able to participate in their chosen event as an individual or as a team.

“The DECA conference was a great way to prepare the students for both higher education and a career in the business field,” said Jackie Buchanan, President and CEO. “In addition, this conference provides students the opportunity to meet and network with likeminded students.”

Students that were awarded with the highest honors at the Lake Orion DECA District 7 conference will move on to compete in the State Career Development Conference, which takes place in Grand Rapids, MI in March 2015.

“This year’s DECA District 7 Conference was another shining moment not only for Lake Orion, but for all the students that are moving on to the State Conference. We are so proud of our hardworking students,” said Julia Dalrymple, teacher at Lake Orion High School
