Prepare for chilly weather. Be sure to pack comfortable shoes, warm clothes that can be layered, and, of course, your McKibbon swag. The weather for Nashville will be in the low 50s during the day and low 30s at night. 

We will have photographers taking headshots on Sunday, December 9, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. near the registration area at the JW Marriott (on the 2nd floor). If you’d like to get your headshot taken, please wear a solid colored shirt and bring a blazer or jacket with you.

The Welcome Reception is on Sunday, December 9 at 6 p.m. This is your chance to meet, reunite and mingle with your McKibbon family. The casual gathering is at Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint. We will have shuttles bringing guests to Martin’s from the JW Marriott beginning at 5:45 p.m. Wear your favorite pair of boots and jeans for a honky-tonkin’ good time.
For the general sessions, the attire is business casual. Meeting rooms tend to be a little cooler, so bring layers if you get cold easily.

Our awards dinner on Monday evening is a special evening to celebrate our achievements and recognize our stand-out leaders. The evening event at The Bell Tower is cocktail attire. We suggest a suit and tie for men, and a cocktail dress for women.
On Tuesday, we will be participating in an interactive community service project. You will receive a new McKibbon volunteer shirt during registration to wear with slacks or nice jeans on this day. Sneakers are acceptable for the community service event. You may wear your volunteer shirt to the general session that morning.

Our last dinner together on Tuesday evening will be a fun event at the Country Music Hall of Fame with live entertainment. The attire is dressy casual and nice jeans are permitted with your favorite pair of boots!
