The most recent New Hampshire DECA State Career Development Conference took place from February 8-10, 2017, at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester.  Students were able to compete in over 35 event areas, including advertising, marketing, hospitality and tourism, entrepreneurship, and accounting.  The big surprise of the conference was the visit from National DECA CEO Paul Wardinski, who presented the state with a plaque commemorating our 60th year as a chartered DECA association.  We were also fortunate to have former NH DECA state officer Crystal Rousseau, VP of Salon Sales for L'Oreal, as our motivational speaker at the Achievement Awards banquet on Thursday night.  In all, over 450 members participated in the conference, and it was one of the most memorable DECA experiences in our 60 year history!
