CLAYTON — On Thursday, December 1 at Northmont High School, the Northmont DECA Chapter welcomed the Northmont Area Chamber of Commerce to campus to hold its monthly board meeting.

The event was used to showcase to the business and marketing students the positives of owning a small business and what working with a Chamber of Commerce will do for a company to the business. The event is just one of many events that will be used for this year’s Entrepreneurship Promotion Project, which is a project designed to educate students on the importance of entrepreneurship and the skills needed.

“To have a partnership with the Chamber of Commerce is an amazing benefit to utilize and help students understand what small businesses do on a daily basis,” said Eric Wagner, DECA advisor. “I think it is so important for students to be able to network with local business owners so they know the skills that are needed to be successful after high school and beyond. I am very excited to have worked with the Chamber of Commerce for this event and for many more events down the road. I am also anxious to see what other items we can add to this year’s Entrepreneurship Promotion Project.”

Any businesses with interest in being involved with the DECA chapter should contact Eric Wagner at 832-6600.
