A Look Back on Collegiate DECA Engage in Atlanta

Nov 7, 2022

Nearly 200 Collegiate DECA members attended the 2022 ENGAGE Conference in Atlanta, GA on November 3-5, 2022.

The weekend included three days of non-stop networking, powerful speakers, career exploration, competition and captivating EduTours. 

One highlight of the conference included behind-the-scenes EduTours to eleven businesses in the Atlanta area. These businesses included AmericasMart, Chick-fil-A, Dagger, Epicurean, Georgia-Pacific, Illuminarium, Inspire, Marriott, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Salesforce and Westin.
