Collegiate DECA’s educational conferences are an important part of the year, integrating knowledge and skills learned in the classroom into real world experiences. Collegiate DECA provides our members opportunities for both personal and professional growth through leadership development, community involvement and competitive events. Our conferences help provide members unique access to internships, scholarships and professional networking.


ENGAGE is an exciting professional development experience. Challenge yourself to understand your unique skills and interests and empower yourself to stand out among the competition!


Many associations offer leadership development conferences. Contact your association advisor to learn about the leadership opportunities for your chapter.


These conferences provide a venue for DECA’s Competitive Events Program as well as additional career and leadership development programs. Many chartered associations host their own CDCs to determine which members earn the right to represent them at the International Career Development Conference.
