DECA Emerging Leader Summit

Washington, D.C. was founded by brave leaders.

This is your year. This is the time to work harder, do better and be stronger. This is the time to erase your doubts and fears and go the distance. Accomplish your goals, set new ones, and conquer the impossible. Do it at the DECA Emerging Leader Summit.

You are not alone. You have chapters, an association, and an international organization waiting for you to make the first move. If you don’t, who will? Shake up the routine, change up the plans and wake up your advisors, officers and members. Last year’s plans are done; it’s time for new ones. Your membership goals, your communications plans, your advocacy strategies—change them all.

Don’t dream about being the best. MAKE IT COUNT and you will be the best.
