Genisys sponsors local Michigan DECA District Conference

LAKE ORION, MI (January 17, 2014) — Genisys Credit Union, which provides services to anyone who lives or works in the Lower Peninsula, recently partnered with the Michigan DECA club to sponsor their 4th Annual DECA Career Development Conference, held at Lake Orion High School on January 11th, 2014.

Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) is a professional level organization for high school students interested in marketing. With nearly 600 students & 70 business professionals in attendance, the event was a huge success. The conference was the first level of competition, with 26 different marketing categories for students to participate in.

“The DECA conference was a great way to introduce high school students to the world of marketing,” said Jackie Buchanan, President and CEO. “It prepares them for both higher education and their future careers in business.”

At this conference students can compete in individual or team events in their chosen marketing career area. Students that were awarded with the highest honors at the Lake Orion DECA conference will move on to the State Career Development Conference, which takes place in Detroit, MI in March 2014.

“With all their hard work and dedication, these young adults will be the future of marketing,” said Julia Dalrymple, teacher at Lake Orion High School. “DECA not only teaches marketing, but also lifelong skills, making students successful in any career they choose.”
