5 Things You Can’t Miss in Phoenix this November

The 2017 Western Region Leadership Conference is taking over Phoenix, Ariz., this fall, and we can’t wait to show you why the West really is the best!

What can you expect to experience at #IgniteWRLC? Check out these five fantastic conference highlights below:

1. IGNITEOpening Session

One might say Thursday night’s IGNITE opening session will be…lit. We will kick off our conference with FOUR keynote presentations by some of Phoenix’s finest entrepreneurs and industry leaders. The opening session will be full of bright lights, loud music, and of course, you all! Make sure to stay locked to the WRLC social media channels – @WRLC2017 – for more information on the keynote presenters!

2. Business and Industry Workshops

Not sure what career you want to pursue in the future? Know exactly what you want to do and want to start making connections? Somewhere in between? WRLC has you covered! This year’s conference will feature over 20 unique workshops presented on a variety of industries by top professionals in their fields. Get unique insight on how these leaders got to where they are and what they do every day. Keep an eye on WRLC’s social media and website for more information on our conference presenters.

3. Friday Evening Entertainment

Did someone say food trucks? Unwind after all those incredible workshops with some networking, food, and maybe even a bit of (my favorite) country music. There’ll be games and a DECA mini-festival, and I can’t wait to see y’all there at an even bigger version of the #DECAELS bus sing-alongs!

4. Competition Training and Mock Competition

WRLC will feature competition training workshops for beginner, advanced, and written event competitors. On Friday, you’ll have the chance to learn competition tips and tricks from the pros in workshops, and then on Saturday you can put your new skills to the test at WRLC’s Mock Competition.

5. Excursions

Saturday afternoon promise to be the highlight of the conference when we take you off-site to some of the top destinations in Phoenix! BUT we aren’t just doing it like the locals – our excursions feature unique presentations from executives of each destination, behind the scenes tours, and much more.

But wait, there’s more!

DECAFit will be offered each morning—high energy, Zumba-style classes are a great way to start the day!
