What to Wear We have received a few questions about the dress code for the APCA Convention, and while there are no actual rules, here are a few suggestions: APCA meetings are largely business casual. For men that includes slacks or khakis, dress shirt or polo, and loafers or dress shoes. For women, that includes dress, skirt or slacks, and a blouse or nice top. At the evening events — Saturday’s Opening General Session and Tuesday’s Final Dinner — people get a little dressier. Many men wear sport coats. Pre- and Post-Convention Rates The resort will honor the discounted APCA room rate for three days before and three days after the convention, based on availability.
