What to bring this December to the National Institute

November 18, 2010 at 12:49 pm 4 comments

As we’re gearing up for the National Institute on December 8-11, many are wondering what to bring. Weather is a factor, as well as the different events. Here are some tips on how to pack your suitcase:

December in Monterey usually means lows in high 40s, days in the 60s.  You’ll also get the onshore wind off the ocean, as it can get chilly in the area. For the Friday afternoon session and classroom setting, you’ll want to pack a nice shirt and clean jeans or khakis.  Saturday, at the ag decision makers panel, wear khakis and a shirt; think business casual. At the Saturday evening awards banquet – guys should wear a dress shirt, nice pants, and a tie. For girls – wear dresses or nice pants.  Also, prepare for the casual farm tours.

EDIT (from Mary Ann):

Hi everyone – As Institute approaches, I thought I would pass along what’s happening here in the Salinas Valley… Winter decided to come for a visit the other day. While the temperatures may seem warm to a lot of you, it’s darn chilly around here these days. The mornings drop to the low to mid 30’s and the highs are i…n the 50’s. If you are coming out to Monterey, please pack clothes for layering and comfy shoes. One of the tours will take you into an artichoke field – weather permitting. And the Ag and Rural Life museum is a walking tour. I am so excited to see everyone!!!

A John Deere rep will be at the entire institute. Keep in mind, other people sharing a table with you at the Institute could one day be a potential employer!

Other things you might want to bring:

  • a jacket
  • your camera (take lots of pictures & send them to us after the event!)
  • comfortable shoes if you plan on “exploring” Monterey
  • cell phone – with Twitter & Facebook apps if you’ve got them!
  • a great attitude!  It’s going to be an awesome time!

Feel free to check the weather before you jet set, go to Monterey Weather Forecast and Conditions.

We hope to see you at the Institute! Pick up the form at http://www.slideshare.net/nyfea/national-instituregistration-newsletter
