There is no higher priority than the health, safety, and well-being of everyone involved in Pennsylvania DECA’s programs. For the health and safety of our members, advisors, volunteers, and staff, the 2021 Pennsylvania DECA State Career Development Conference will be conducted virtually. We will make any updates regarding future events online at and through email communication to chapter advisors.

The State Career Development Conference (SCDC) is an opportunity for over 2,000 DECA members to network with and compete against the best of the best from all around Pennsylvania! With our high-energy general sessions, exhilarating competitions, engaging workshops, electrifying fashion show and other fun activities, this conference is sure to be one that you don’t want to miss!

This 3-day conference is where DECA members participate in competitive events in hopes of qualifying for the International Career Development Conference. Please reference the PA DECA Supplemental Guide for a current listing all of competitive events. To be eligible to compete at ICDC, members must place in the top 4 in their competitive event at this conference.

In addition to competing, all members will be required to attend one of the interactive workshops that is offered. Some of our workshop presenters include youth entrepreneurs, business owners, professional sports teams and even your State Officers!

Conference Registration fee is $45 for 2021
