    A quick note on attire. Please wear comfortable shoes for walking, as well as a warm jacket. While we can not be sure what the weather will be like, we can expect it to be somewhere in the 40-50s around this time of year with humidity, and that makes it a little cool.

    (Tickets were sold in advance of the Annual Meeting.  If space is available, a ticket may be purchased at On-Site Registration until 9:00 pm on Wednesday, January 6 or at the bus departure point on Thursday, January 7.
