Business Casual attire is required for all Convention "business" programming (general session, legislation, workshops). As in years' past, the Butterfly Banquet dress code is semi-formal. The Convention Service Project may require special attire. Visit the programming page for specifics. Off-site activities do not require a specific attire, however, please be mindful that you are a representation of Theta Nu Xi as a convention attendee.

As in years' past, an official Convention 2017 t-shirt will be offered. Be sure to indicate your preference for a short-sleeved or long-sleeved shirt on your registration form and include the cost of your selection in your payment. Visit the planning page for details about t-shirt costs. A t-shirt proof will be released to the membership once the shirt design has been finalized. 

12. Can I bring a guest/my significant other to the Awards Banquet? And what's the deal with the after party?
Yes! Check off the option for "additional banquet ticket" in the registration form. Guest tickets are $50. Following the Awards Banquet, we will be having a Party Like It's 1997 After-Party this year! The after party is open to all. Cost: while the after party is free to sisters registered for convention/banquet, if you're a sister or guest who's not registered for convention or the Awards Banquet, admission will be a $5 donation to Girl Up.
