Advocacy on Capitol Hill at #CDECAICDC

There are #limitless chances to grow, learn and network at #CDECAICDC! Make the most of your experience in our nation’s capital this year by using your voice and connecting with elected officials.

The Advocacy on Capitol Hill Orientation and Training, which will be offered for the first time this year at #CDECAICDC, offers a unique opportunity to develop your advocacy skills and engage with your representatives in Congress. DECA’s strongest advocates are you – our students, advisors and local chapters that truly make up this organization.

Attend the session on Wednesday, April 11 from 9-10 a.m., and then put your policy prowess to good use by scheduling a meeting with your representatives (listed below). We recommend scheduling these appointments before you arrive in Washington, D.C.
