Leadership Conferences

Join us for Central Region Leadership Conference

November 16 - 18, 2018 

Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center


While the majority of activities is for high school members, we feel that Collegiate DECA members can also broaden their knowledge by attending the Opening Session and assisting as a Judge for our Mock Competition. While the events for the two divisions are structured differently, serving as a judge for the Mock Competition will aid each collegiate member’s understanding on the best practices when participating in DECA’s competitive events program.
