Dress Code: business casual
We request that our attendees dress in a professional manner, but we would like you to be comfortable as well (it will be hot). As a rule of thumb, clothing that works well for the beach, yard work, dance clubs, exercise sessions, and sports contests is not appropriate for a professional appearance at work. Some examples of items that would be considered inappropriate are: skorts, sun dresses, beach dresses, spaghetti-strap dresses, flip-flops, shorts, halter or midriff baring tops, baseball caps, ripped/worn t-shirts, ripped/worn/decorated jeans, shirts with inappropriate slogans, muscle shirts, sweatpants, sweatshirts, leggings, and any spandex or other form-fitting pants such as people wear for biking. etc.
