Fashion Police at Midwest Chapter meeting

Hi all

I have been asked, in honor of Joan Rivers, to explain the fashion expected for the 2014 Midwest Chapter Conference in Bismarck, ND. The theme is “Come West and Explore.”

Saturday night will be a western theme for our opening reception, so bring your denim, plaid, cowboy hats and boots.  Example:

Get the picture?

See you in Bismarck!!!!!!!!!
