Camosun College business students continue the climb to success.

Business students from Camosun DECA took two awards at a Washington state conference in February. Camosun’s team was one of six colleges and university competing in 15 business simulation categories.

The Career Development Conference is an annual event held this year in Spokane, Washington, February 17-19, 2011.

Camosun students Charlene Caldwell and Peter Tikk took first and third place, respectively, in the Hospitality Marketing and Restaurant, Food Service Management business simulation competition. The competition includes the completion of a comprehensive exam and a role-playing business case solution presented to a panel of judges. Shari Corrigan is Camosun’s DECA faculty instructor and mentor."This was a particularly impressive win for Camosun as it was the third time in as many years that our students placed in the competition," says Corrigan.

Camosun DECA is the only DECA chapter in Canada west of Manitoba.

DECA is a business club which prepares its members for challenging, rewarding careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. Participating in local and international business-related competitions helps hone business skills while providing networking opportunities. Club members also volunteer at local events, organize fundraising activities, participate in leadership seminars and competitions.

Kyle Blakeney is currently the president of Camosun DECA. "We’re fundraising right now to send DECA members to the International Career Development conference and business simulation competitions in April in Orlando," says Blakeney. "We always aspire to the next step!"
