3 Reasons I’m Excited About ENGAGE 2017

November is fast approaching, and that means #CDECAENGAGE is as well.

If you haven’t looked at the registration package, check it out here. It’s safe to say this year’s conference looks better than ever!

Here are three things I am looking forward to from Collegiate DECA’s ENGAGE conference:

1. Location + Venue

ENGAGE 2017 will take place at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel in the heart of New York City. Not only is the hotel beautiful, but you’re within minutes from countless New York attractions. Evenings are yours to explore the city, check out tourist attractions and create memories outside of the conference programming.

2. Year Round Experience

ENGAGE is looking to be more than just a conference. Not only will you have the chance to present your solutions to a case study to the companies involved, but also the competitive events will provide the opportunity to reignite relationships with DECA National Advisory Board partners throughout the year. The aim here is to develop a research report for competitive events at the Collegiate DECA International Career Development Conference as well.

3. Career Cluster

Designed to introduce you to like-minded people, career clusters let you compete and network with delegates and professionals alike. Whether you’re interested in finance, marketing, management, hospitality or entrepreneurship, this program allows you to tour a related company’s office as well as meet and network with current industry professionals.
