There is no higher priority than the health, safety and well-being of everyone involved in DECA’s conferences. DECA Inc. has continued to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and as a result, the 2020 DECA Emerging Leader Summit in Washington, D.C. will move to a virtual format. Despite interest and exploring possibilities to hold the in-person conference, it has now become nearly impossible to do so due to continued restrictions placed on the allowable size of meetings in the District of Columbia. The DECA Emerging Leader Summit will be hosted in a virtual format July 10-12, 2020. The virtual summit will provide presentations, workshops, networking opportunities and more. It will also feature presentations and engagement by the DECA Executive Officer Team.
