Organizers of an international business conference for high school and college students are seeking 1,000 supervisors, managers and executives in the business, marketing, finance, hospitality and tourism fields to judge 60 competitive events in Anaheim in April.
More than 16,000 high school and college students from around the U.S. and at least three other countries will compete at the 2013 DECA International Career Development Conference. DECA is a not-for-profit that fosters young emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management through these competitions.
The students, who must win competitions in their local communities and states to qualify, have to demonstrate their savvy about marketing, entrepreneurship, finance, hospitality and tourism, and management. They will compete in role-playing situations, case studies and prepared presentations in categories such as accounting, advertising campaign, business operations research, business law and ethics, entrepreneurship, fashion merchandising, hotel and lodging management, restaurant management, retail merchandising, sales managements and sports and entertainment marketing. DECA is seeking volunteer judges in those fields.
Nearly 1,500 college students will compete April 17 to 20. DECA needs 150 volunteer judges on April 19 at the Anaheim Hilton Hotel.
In addition, more than 15,000 high schools students and advisors will attend the conference April 24 to 27 at the Anaheim Convention Center. The group needs 1,000 volunteer judges on April 26 for that competition.
Shane Thomas, DECA's competitive events director, said judges will evaluate 18 to 20 presentations. Some judges will be needed all day, while others will just be needed in the morning or afternoon. Training for judges as well as parking and lunch will be provided the day of the event.
Volunteers may learn more and sign up at deca.org/events/judge or by contacting Thomas at 703-860-5000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
