In early April, the days are warm and the nights are cool, with temperatures ranging from 60 degrees in the evening, to 83 degrees in the midday. Casual business attire, suitable to a warm climate, is recommended for all business sessions. It is always a wise idea to have a sweater or suit jacket for meeting rooms, which tend to be kept on the cool side. Attire for Saturday night’s Welcome Reception is “smart” casual. Tuesday morning’s Contact Table Program will be business casual, to allow members the opportunity to sport their company logo golf shirts paired with business slacks. Business attire is advised for Sunday night’s hospitality suites. Bring your fancy Cowboy duds for Tuesday night’s Reception and Dinner.
The NAHAD Annual Convention is open to members of NAHAD only. If you are not a member and wish to attend, please visit our Join page.
