At the International Career Development Conference (ICDC), over 18,000 high school students, advisors, businesspersons, and alumni gather for several days of DECA excitement. Most participants at ICDC compete in one of DECA's competitive events vying to be the best in the world. In addition to competitive events, many students and advisors participate in a variety of leadership and career advancing academies.

The due date for the return of the file is no later than March 12th. The turnaround period to submit hotel rooming and contest registration is a short one. Timely payment is necessary as the Gaylord Opryland is paid in full prior to our attending the conference. As in the past, we will also be purchasing a block of tickets for the New York Delegation for the show at Opryland and need the total number by the 12th.  No registration submitted, no tickets for your chapter. 

We have a limited number of single rooms so if you have chaperones that are able to share rooms, please room them together. It also will save you some money.  

In order tor register students for workshops you need to contact Mary Peres as there are limited slots this year. Escpecially in SBE.  Those schools that are eligible for SBE have alredy been notified by DECA, Inc.  

As you prepare to travel to Rochester, on behalf of New York DECA, we wish you the best of luck and Safe Travels
