It has been a year of virtual meetings, social distancing, and challenges galore. While the 2021 Oklahoma DECA Career Development Conference will be held virtually to ensure the safety and opportunity to participate to all of our Oklahoma DECA members, we have worked tirelessly to create a meaningful conference experience. All competitions will be offered, leadership workshops will be available, courtesy corps will be an option, and we have a fantastic keynote speaker lined up. Each and every conference experience that can be translated into the virtual world has been thought out. Our mission: to provide you with a conference experience that you can take part in, safely, from home or school or wherever you might be. If you are ready to take an adventure with us that will surely be different than ever before talk to your local DECA advisor to register for this year’s Career Development Conference!
