CONFERENCE ATTIRE & BANQUET INFO
Conference & event attire is business casual. We recommend dressing in layers as March can be unpredictable. The annual banquet will be a classy event - cocktail party attire is appropriate.
Included in Wednesday night’s dinner festivities, we’ll have an onsite event with fundraising activities including a live auction. Please consider picking up an auction item to donate and help replenish WMCA’s scholarship fund!
All proceeds from the raffles & auction items are used for scholarships to attend the WMCA and IIMC annual conferences, the Northwest Clerks Institute & Master Academy trainings. Make sure to buy a few tickets and support our clerks' professional development!
