Welcome to our DECA Website. While starting a Hospitality and Tourism Academy in Miami 9 years ago, I decided to incorporate DECA into that program. I have seen first hand how DECA members develop leadership skills by serving as officers, committee members and spokespersons, attending conferences, planning and conducting elections and meetings. When I moved to Bilbao, Spain 4 years ago, I brought the program with me and we have attended the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) each year since. DECA is recognized by Congress and endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education. We are the first and only delegation in Spain to attend the conference.
