Your AGMA/ABMA Annual Meeting Guide to packing

The Annual Meeting is only a couple weeks away and it is time to start picking out what you are going to bring. There are a lot of fun and different events happening this year, so here is a guide of suggestions to make things easier.

Don't shy away from dressing for the theme at the events; it will be fun to see everyone get creative.

1. Business Casual: Look professional but relaxed. Polos or a button-up and khakis are perfect.
