What Went Down at DECA's 2021 Mastermind Conference

August 19, 2021

Take a peek at what took place during this year's Mastermind – DECA’s Chartered Association Management Conference.

Mastermind was hosted in the vibrant city of Atlanta, Georgia in August. Attendees caught a glimpse of what the upcoming International Career Development Conference (ICDC) will look like – and it is safe to say that the upcoming ICDC is on track to be one of the best yet.

Chartered association representatives gathered to discuss key topics including ethical leadership, the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion within our organization, how DECA can maximize its membership and setting the foundation for what will be a memorable year. I also had the honor of representing the Executive Officer Team by presenting our Program of Leadership.

During the DECA Inc. Annual Business Meeting, the Board of Directors congratulated its top membership associations from both the Collegiate and High School Divisions.

Throughout the conference, attendees also had the opportunity to tour venues such as the Mercedes-Benz Stadium (no, we did not get to see Kanye), the Georgia World Congress Center, Ponce City Market and several hotels that will host members during ICDC 2022.

Overall, DECA’s Mastermind Conference was an enormous success – and the countdown to April has officially begun!
