If you couldn’t tell, the Collegiate DECA Executive Officer Team loves talking about #CDECAENGAGE and we are looking forward to welcoming you to New York City in a little over a month!

As we are getting closer to a fun filled three days in NYC, I want to give you a little taste of what to expect when you are there.

DECA Inc. has been working very hard to line up some great National Advisory Board (NAB) companies to come and speak with you all while in NYC.

This is no typical conference, and here is what you can expect at ENGAGE:


You will not only get to network with our NAB partners present at the conference, but you will also be able to meet people from all over the world as Collegiate DECA members will congregate for these few day. This is my favorite part about this conference because you are going to be able to meet people.

The NAB partners that will be present at the conference are:

  • The National Apartment Association Education Institute
  • M & M Productions
  • Vanguard
  • Marriott International, Inc.
  • Men’s Wearhouse

Off- Site Experiences

We have five different track you can choose and each one will take you all over New York City while you learn more about each of the industries.

The five tracks you can choose from are:

  • Business Administration & Management
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance & Accounting
  • Hospitality & Tourism
  • Marketing & Communications


Collegiate DECA has designed a new competition that begins at #CDECAENGAGE and ends in Washington D.C., at the 2018 Collegiate DECA International Career Development Conference.

The ENGAGE Case Study Competition gives you an even better way to engage with National Advisory Board partners, and get a leg up on the Collegiate DECA Business Research Event. Check out the competition details here.

The deadline to register for #CDECAENGAGE is October 10, so get signed up today!

Overall, #CDECAENGAGE is going to be a great time and we are looking forward to welcoming you in November. If you have any questions about ENGAGE conference, feel free to reach out any of your executive officers, and Jeff Collins.
