Q & A 76 RWA Conference Dress Code
May a request a topic? Maybe put up a thing asking who is going to Atlanta for RWA's National Conference so we know what minions to watch for? I'm definitely taking my t-shirt, but still - I'd like to watch for a few if I knew they were going.
At a Star Trek convention you may dress like a Vulcan, a Klingon, or a giant Tribble. At the RWA conference, you're out to make contacts, and will be dressing more professionally. And while an Evil Editor shirt identifies you as a rising star, less casual dress is recommended, at least until you see others dressed in t-shirts, which is unlikely.
The comments feature may be used to identify yourself as a minion going to Atlanta, and to arrange a method of identification, such as, everyone wear a gold zombie pin on your blouse, or everyone walk around the hotel bar Thursday at 10:30 p.m. holding a frozen drink with a little umbrella in it.
