We will be participating in the 2015 Collegiate DECA Leadership Academy in mid-November 2015. Students experience the industry and career field of their choice by meeting with industry leaders, going behind the scenes to learn how business gets done, and putting their knowledge to the test to find new solutions to challenges that today’s industries are facing! Students will network with other students from across the country and work in teams to address industry issues. It is an opportunity of a lifetime to live, learn and lead.
