Banquet at 2016 ICMA Conference

We hope you'll be able to join us for the reception and banquet during the ICMA conference! If you want to see all of the places where you'll be able to find a KU person during ICMA, check out this page: http://kupa.ku.edu/kucimats/ku-at-icma

Sunday, September 25

Program

Because of the unique venue this year, we've extended the reception time so that you can explore the College Basketball Experience. (And you will want to!) That also means that we've shortened the formal program and eliminated some usual pieces of the banquet to give you more time to catch up with your friends.

Attire

Banquet attire is casual to business casual this year so you can take full advantage of this venue. (Whatever you’ve been wearing at the conference all day is fine with us!) You are welcome to wear shoes that you can play basketball in - seriously.
