WELCOME

FROM YOUR EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Welcome to Collegiate DECA’s International Career Development Conference. Washington, D.C., is a great site for you to celebrate your achievements, test your skills and network with over 2,000 DECA members and sponsors. Collegiate DECA members, advisors and business partners accepted the challenge to MAKE IT COUNT in 2013-14 by setting ambitious goals for engagement, membership and community involvement. The results have been extraordinary. Historic membership and conference participation levels, outstanding community service projects and incredible engagement across our social media platforms are great achievements to be celebrated. Collegiate DECA student leaders, advisors and business partners have championed our organization with enthusiasm and dedication. Each of us should thank them for their engagement and support. As I transition into retirement and the next phase of my life’s journey, I am reminded of how fortunate I am to have had the opportunity to spend my career in such an incredible organization. As a student, chapter advisor, association advisor and executive director, I’ve been blessed by my association with outstanding leaders at every level of our organization. No career could have been more rewarding than mine.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER Ellen Davis is senior vice president of the National Retail Federation (NRF) and executive director of the NRF Foundation. In this role, she has restructured the NRF Foundation to more closely align with NRF’s strategic plan and created a new mission and vision for the NRF Foundation. Davis oversees a team of professionals who build awareness of the retail industry through statistics and stories; develop talent through education, experiences and scholarships; and foster career growth among people who work in retail. Under Davis’ leadership, the NRF Foundation has tripled university membership and successfully added a Student Program to NRF’s signature events, Retail’s BIG Show and the Shop.org Summit, to demonstrate the diversity of careers in retail. Since her appointment, the NRF Foundation has awarded over $500,000 in student scholarships, in addition to full-tuition scholarships for retail workers through NRF’s Dream BIG Scholarship. As a chief spokesperson for NRF on retail industry trends, Davis has appeared on dozens of broadcast news programs including Your World with Neil Cavuto, CNBC’s Squawk Box, and Good Morning America, and been quoted numerous times in USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times. She has appeared as a featured speaker at industry conferences including the National Confectioners Association’s Candy EXPO and the National Stationery Show, and more than a dozen college campuses. After coining the phrase “Cyber Monday,” which is now considered the official kickoff of the online holiday shopping season, Davis was named one of “15 to watch” by PR Week magazine.

RECOGNIZING A CAREER OF VISIONARY LEADERSHIP TO DECA No one represents the notion of dedicating one’s life to the service of an organization better than Dr. Edward L. Davis. His DECA journey first began as a high school studentmember at Albany High School in Georgia, where he directly credits his involvement with helping him graduate. At that time however, he could have never imaged that his ordinary DECA membership as a student would be the springboard for a career devoted to providing the DECA experience to more than five million students over the next 40 years. In his first experience with DECA following his high school membership, Davis helped members attain career readiness skills by serving as a training station sponsor while managing a men’s clothing store for four years. For the next three years, he taught marketing education courses at Americus High School in Georgia, where he also started the school’s very first DECA chapter. Davis then attained his masters and doctorate degrees from the University of Georgia, while at the same time chairing Georgia DECA’s campaign to raise money for a room at the newly opened DECA headquarters in Reston, Virginia. Davis then served as state advisor and program supervisor for West Virginia DECA, doubling the membership in just three years. Shortly after, Davis joined the DECA Inc. staff as associate executive director in 1982. After 10 years of service in that role, Davis accepted the executive director position in 1992 and has served as the organization’s chief officer ever since. Always committed to advancing DECA and providing the very best experience to students and advisors, Davis has used his visionary leadership to develop teams, lead staff and motivate key stakeholders to advance DECA’s mission. As a result, the organization has achieved milestones in membership, partnerships, programs, services and finances. Through relentless chapter and membership development efforts, DECA’s annual membership has grown by more than 70,000 members, reaching the 200,000-membership milestone in the high school division this year. DECA has expanded its international presence, and participation in the now International Career Development Conference has grown from 2,500 to 17,000. During Davis’ tenure, DECA has secured more than $50 million dollars in sponsorship and partnership support that directly enhanced programs for students and advisors. In addition, Davis guided DECA’s strategic positioning for a prosperous future through a rebranding initiative that aligned DECA’s programs with current education models and expanded DECA’s programs to serve more classrooms and students. Davis encouraged the continuous revision and improvement of DECA’s programs and services while also ensuring DECA’s financially strong reputation. The organization that members, advisors and partners have grown to know and love is a direct result of the legendary leadership of Dr. Davis. While numbers and percentages demonstrate the impact Dr. Davis has had on this organization, the true results of his leadership are in the hearts of the millions of individuals around the world whose lives have been forever changed by DECA. DECA applauds Dr. Davis’s dedication and visionary leadership and recognizes him with Honorary Life Membership. 10

AWARD RECIPIENTS OUTSTANDING SERVICE AWARD

The Outstanding Service Award is presented to professionals who have made distinguished contributions to further the mission of DECA Inc. at the international level for more than five years. We congratulate and sincerely thank this year’s recipient, Ramona D. Starr, Washington.

DECA WELCOMES NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Paul A. Wardinski has been selected as the incoming executive director of DECA Inc. He will join the staff June 1, 2014, as the deputy executive director and assume the executive director position when Edward Davis retires this fall. Wardinski brings nearly 30 years of experience in educational leadership and management, serving in roles from a marketing education teacher and DECA advisor to secondary education administrator, including two high school principalships. Most recently, he was the Director of the Office of Professional and Life Skills in the Instructional Services Department for Fairfax County Public Schools (Va.), the 11th largest school district in the United States. Beginning his DECA experience as a student member over 33 years ago, Wardinski served as a DECA advisor for 11 years before assuming various administrative positions. Since then, Wardinski has continued his involvement with DECA, serving as a competitive events coordinator at DECA’s International Career Development Conference for the past 17 years. In addition, he has served on the DECA Competitive Events Taskforce since 2012, received the DECA Inc. Outstanding Service Award in 2012, authored nearly 400 competitive events scenarios and participated in numerous scholarship and program reviews. Wardinski was also part of a small team that created the sports and entertainment marketing curriculum in Virginia, and served as a reviewer and consulting editor for numerous textbooks. Wardinski was selected through a nationwide search led by the DECA Inc. Board of Directors. He will become only the fourth person to serve as executive director in the organization’s 68-year history. Wardinski earned a B.S. in marketing education from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and an M.E. in educational leadership from George Mason University in Virginia.
