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!
