Especially for first-time attendees at the conference, we’ve had some questions about what to wear. Casual is definitely okay. The Silent Auction/Banquet is the most formal of all the activities. The exhibit reception gets a mixed crowd–mostly casual, though. Think of the conference this way:
Thursday Daytime (casual) Thursday Exhibit Reception (smart casual) Friday Daytime (casual) Saturday Daytime (casual) Saturday Evening Silent Auction/Banquet–more tidy than normal, an opportunity to dress up a bit, either skirts or pants are fine
Don’t forget to check on the weather. It’s been unusually warm this week, but is supposed to start cooling down to 80 and below by Thursday. Even on the warmest days you will need a warm sweater or jacket for our cool evenings in the 60’s.
