These conferences provide a venue for DECA’s Competitive Events Program as well as additional career and leadership development programs. Chartered associations host their own CDCs to determine which members earn the right to represent them at the International Career Development Conference, the pinnacle event of the year for more than 10,000 competitors vying for the title of international champion and 4,000 members engaged in leadership academies, elections and more.
