The Dress Code

A number of people have asked if there is a dress code for the conference.

The short answer is no.

We only ask that your attire conform to the laws of the District of Columbia.

The long answer is as follows.

This year’s event will have two parts. (A more detailed schedule will appear on this blog in the coming weeks.)

The first portion will begin in the morning, include lunch, and last into the afternoon. I can’t speak for everyone, but I will be wearing a suit and tie.

We will then have a late-afternoon break, during which you could return to your hotel, get a drink or bite to eat, etc.

The second portion will begin in the evening. It will be more casual and more festive: food and a cash bar will be available, and the highlight, no doubt, will be the music of Robert Taylor. In other words, it’ll be time to lose the ties.


As one atttendee reminded me, it will be Halloween. So knock yourself out!
