Please check out this page we've created specifically to answer all questions delegates might have (including a link to a fantastic external Robert's Rules of Order cheat sheet that's super useful to keep handy!)!

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.
