PAS Professional Dress Code

The culture of the Professional Accounting Society is, well…professional. The standard of dress required at all general meetings and for upcoming private recruiting events is – at minimum – business casual, though business professional dress is recommended. Business casual for gentlemen translates as dress-slacks, button-down top and dress tie; a suit jacket or sportcoat is optional and always preferred. For the ladies; knee length skirts or dress pants with a blouse or button-down are appropriate; dress-jackets are encouraged. The only exception to the PAS standard of dress aforementioned is if you elect to wear the PAS Professional Polo with dress-slacks or knee-length skirt. Dress for success!

Every Thursday is PAS Polo Day!

Rock your PAS polo with style. Be sure to wear your PAS Polo every Thursday! A free PAS stylus-pen will be rewarded to random members for wearing their PAS Polos on Thursdays! More cool merchandise at the Official PAS Store.

Upcoming Event!

Save the date! PAS will be hosting an Etiquette Dinner Workshop on October 22, 2015.

More information will be provided to members at the general members’ meeting October 8, 2015
