GREETINGS FROM THE STATE DIRECTOR Potential Partners, Through their partnership with Montana DECA, businesses are supporting a comprehensive co-curricular learning platform that empowers youth across Montana to become academically prepared, community oriented, professionally responsible, experienced leaders. With your commitment to spirited and motivated people looking for something different, our emerging leaders and entrepreneurs are able to expand their opportunities, learn key business principles, and inspire their communities toward continued greatness. While gaining a valuable high school education, Montana DECA members are connected to a network of more than 286,000 members across our international community, including all fifty states and nine countries. Montana DECA’s comprehensive learning platform integrates into classroom instruction, applies learning, promotes competition, and connects to business. For more than 65 years, Montana DECA has partnered with Montana’s top brands, to successfully achieve our goals, and provide our members with real connection and exposure to the business community. Montana DECA’s mission is to acquire corporate partners that enhance our mission, while simultaneously mentoring, advising, and actively participating in our events and programs. We frequently seek input from our corporate partners, and often ask key leaders to host workshops and learning labs for our members at the annual State Career Development Conference. Primary Benefits of Corporate Partnership Include: • A pipeline to more than 200,000 semi-trained, career-focused retail and corporate employees. • Exposure to Montana high school and college students eager to learn about industry opportunity. • A sales and marketing channel to Montana high school and college campuses. • A business investment that fulfills your commitment to corporate and social responsibility. Montana DECA exposes high school youth to competence, integrity, innovation, and teamwork. Through our programs and initiatives, we are changing lives, empowering dreams, and expanding possibilities. I would appreciate 10 minutes of your time to discuss how we might work together to achieve these goals and provide mutual benefit. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from your office soon. Sincerely,

John Stiles State Director Montana DECA Direct: 406-209-4490 Office: 406-404-1500 Email: jstiles@mtdeca.com Website: www.mtdeca.com
