DECA Conference

The 2012 Annual Collegiate DECA Conference had over 1,200 attendees with 230 campuses represented from the United States and Canada. Weber State had 22 students at the conference competing in 11 different events. After the preliminary round of competition, Weber had eight students receive medals and qualify to compete in the final events. This represents over 36 percent of Weber State students making it to the final rounds.

Weber State students received a total of 10 medals and five plaques and received 12 International Career Development Conference Awards of Excellence in Exceeding the National Standard of Performance. 

Along with the competitive events, students engaged in educational academies, panel discussions, interactive training sessions and leadership focus groups. This year, the Collegiate DECA staff, Board of Directors and the Post-Secondary Council offered many meaningful experiences throughout the week for the Collegiate DECA students.
