Regardless of vaccination status everyone is encouraged to wear a mask whenever not eating or drinking indoors. We will have extra seating in the meeting room for those who prefer more space. Also, we will have color coded dots at registration to denote comfort level. See below.

Q. What do the red, yellow, and green dots on the name badges mean?

We’ve developed a sticker system to make sure everyone is comfortable while we gather. We ask everyone to please be mindful and respectful of each other during this event. Thank you!

Q. Is there a dress code?

A. Not really. Let’s call it business casual or resort casual. Relax and be comfortable. Our Sunday evening party is outside so please dress for the weather.
