ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL CAREER DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE
From Washington State, more than 800 students, advisors, and chaperones will attend the 2017 International Career Development Conference (ICDC) in Anaheim, California in April. Most ICDC participants compete in one of DECA’s performance-based competitive events. The top competitors in each event are recognized for their outstanding achievements, and many are awarded continuing education scholarships, stock, and cash awards. In addition to the competitive events, many students and advisors participate in workshops, seminars, and training academies.
