The following are a few items to remember in preparation for the conference:

  • What to Wear: At this time of year, day temperatures in Lake of the Ozarks, MO are in the mid-60s with nights in the upper-40s. We recommend you dress in layers. Remember the meeting rooms will likely be cool so bring a light jacket, or come by the AMBUCS store for the latest AMBUCS gear! Comfortable walking shoes are a must if you are planning to explore the region or join the Trek 4 Trykes walk-a-thon.  The Foundation program, business sessions and educational workshops are casual.  The President’s Dinner and Reception is dressy casual to semi-formal.
