This milestone gala will be held on the historic USS Midway Naval aircraft carrier. The event ticket is included in your Annual Meeting registration fee. Guest tickets for spouses or non-AANN attendees will be for sale for $125 per ticket.

Attire: Dressy Casual

Women: Avoid wearing denim, tennis shoes, and cotton tees. Instead, opt for silk pants, dress pants, a skirt, or casual dress. The event will be held on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier which includes authentic naval equipment. The ship does have elevators, however the stairs on the ship are metal and will not be conducive to stiletto heels. AANN highly encourages that members wear flat shoes with no heel or wedges so they can get the full experience of exploring the ship.

Men: Wear trousers and a dress shirt with a leather loafer, oxfords, or a slip-on shoe. Pair with a blazer or sport coat. A tie is optional.
