International Career Development Conference
April 28 - May 3
DECA ICDC is the Olympics, Super Bowl, and Academy Awards for DECA’s emerging leaders and entrepreneurs!
Each April/May more than 17,000 teachers and students gather in a major American city like Anaheim, Atlanta, Nashville, and Orlando to compete against the world’s best DECA competitors. From China to Canada to Clarkston…it’s the grand prix and final stop in DECA competition and the enthusiasm, energy, and expectations couldn’t be higher.
Out of 12,000 Washington DECA students who started the competition journey, only 800 are allowed to advance to international competition. Competitive event allocations by International DECA are set by state membership, and one reasons Washington has set a goal to reach 13,000 members is that it will provide additional opportunities for Washington DECA students to participate in the International CDC.
DECA ICDC is not only 5 days of intense competition, it’s also the place for outstanding educational experiences in the DECA Emerging Leader Series. Incredible Leadership Academies for new and veteran DECA teachers, emerging leaders, DECA seniors, and future executive leaders serve to accelerate student learning, confidence, networking, and opportunities.
On the final night of ICDC, the top individual, team, and chapter winners from around the world are crowned in an unbelievable grand awards show.
For over 20 years, Washington DECA has been a consistent top three state in global competition and our quest is simple—be number one!
