• Skirts or dresses
• Dress shirts
• Neat slacks (not jeans)
Note that simple casual dress code is required for the group activity and dinner on October 4th.
Are the expenses incurred for the Summit a taxable benefit?
No. Because this is not a rewards program, and you are paying your own way, this will not be a taxable benefit. However, we suggest that you check with your tax professional on how best to handle this trip, as some costs may be deductible business travel expenses.
Can I get continuing education credits?
Yes. Continuing education credits will be assessed when content is finalized and reviewed by accreditors.
