About ICDC

Congratulations to all the Ontario delegates that participated in the 2018 DECA International Conference in Atlanta, Georgia!

The International Career Development Conference (ICDC) is designed to bring together persevering DECA members from around the world to take part in one final competition in their chosen event category. Every year at the end of April, DECA Ontario, with all its intensity, heads south to the USA for one week to prepare, perform, and parade our spirit! Each year, we represent Canada and we represent to the fullest (please see Recognition for our success story and statistics). Students not competing have the opportunity to attend ICDC to participate in one of many leadership programmes to build on chapter management skills and bring a wealth of ideas back to help improve your local Chapter.  All students have the opportunity to network with members from international chapters at the Opening and Grand Awards Ceremonies and participate in our famous kitsch swap where students trade pins, ties, shirts, hats, and other local paraphernalia. In between events, students enjoy the Career Development Fair in which sponsors provide information on the variety of careers available under the umbrella of business and host activities, draws, and free giveaways. To wrap up the week, DECA Ontario tours the city and all its major attractions, squeezes out your last bit of energy at the DECA prom, and leaves you ready to sleep through your trip back home. ICDC is an unforgettable experience you won’t want to miss!
