Each winter, the Montana DECA Career Development Conference brings together all DECA chapters in the State of Montana. Students take a 100-question Marketing Cluster Exam and then compete in a multitude of competency-based competitive events in the following categories: Principles of Business Administration Events, Individual Series Events, Team Decision Making Events, Business Operations Research Events, Chapter Team Events, Business Management and Entrepreneurship Events, and Marketing Representative Events. The 2020 CDC will be held at Fairmont Hot Spings in mid-February.
Each spring, after the State Conference, the DECA International Career Development Conference brings together all first and second place winners from all 50 states to compete in their respective events. The 2020 ICDC will be held in Nashville, Tennessee in late April.
