A Sneak Peak of Collegiate DECA's Engage Conference

October 4, 2021

Now that the DECA year has begun and we've all gotten back into the swing of things on our campuses, it’s time to begin looking forward to conferences again! This year's Engage Conference takes place on November 11-13, 2021, in Austin, Texas. Not only is it the first Collegiate DECA conference of the year, but it will also be the first in-person conference for Collegiate DECA members in over two years.

Day One

Engage is a great opportunity for us to reconnect with members from many associations. On Friday evening, the conference kicks off with a networking reception where you can reconnect with members from around the globe, face-to-face.

Day Two

Day two of Engage will focus on career building and leadership development. With interactive sessions on personal branding, crafting the perfect resume, DE&I, employee engagement and more, you'll gain new insights to help you stand out in your internship or career search.

After a day of learning, the evening is your chance to explore all that the city of Austin has to offer with members of your chapter and new friends you've met during the conference.

Day Three

We know plenty of members have yet to have a “normal” Collegiate DECA experience with in-person competitions and chapter events. Therefore, this year’s event includes a competition bootcamp on the final day of the conference. Members will receive hands-on, guided training to learn what it takes to succeed in DECA’s competitive events program. Also on Saturday morning, chapter leaders will have the opportunity to participate in a chapter forum to learn how to grow their chapter into a high-performing one through simple strategies.

The Executive Officer team and I could not be more excited to welcome Collegiate DECA members to Austin, Texas. We hope you can join us!

Don't forget to register by October 12, 2021.
