Fall Leadership Conference

The Fall Leadership Conference (FLC) is a hands-on experience that familiarizes students with DECA, generating excitement and momentum leading in to their DECA year. Students attend a wide variety of dynamic breakout sessions led by key business professionals, DECA advisors, and Washington DECA staff. They also have the unique opportunity to practice their knowledge and skills during Mock Competition and a Mock (job) Interview. At the Marketing Fair, students network with exhibitors who are showcasing fundraising opportunities, school-based enterprise products, higher education institutions, and more. Each chapter is invited to select two student leaders to attend the Chapter Leadership Academy led by their peers—the Washington DECA State Officer Team.
