Virtual State Leadership Conference

Virtual State Leadership Conference


Michigan DECA will be using a special online Conference Portal to process registration for the leadership conference.

The program will focus on interactive activities for members to develop and use their leadership skills and on DECA programs and activities. In addition to these interactive activities, there will be interactive exhibits from colleges, school store suppliers, and fund-raising vendors.

We will have interactive live workshops hosted by FOCUS Training in both the morning and afternoon of Tuesday, October 27.   Pre-recorded Diamond Talks are available to watch on-demand around your schedule.  Most of the conference content will be available for 30 days following the conference to all registered attendees.

The conference will also have a game component!  Compete against other members to rack up the points by attending workshops and finding the hidden diamonds in the conference rooms.


Supervision: At least one (1) adult must attend and pay the registration fee.

Code of Conduct Form: Each delegate must sign the Code of Conduct Form.

Dress Code: Neat, casual attire is appropriate. If possible, we would prefer student members to be in DECA or school branded polos, sweatshirts or t-shirts.
