As you prepare for your journey to the ONS 41st Annual Congress in San Antonio you might be thinking, “What in the world should I pack?” Well, no need to worry because here are some tips on what to bring for a successful trip.

We have been getting quite a few rainy days lately, so you may want to toss an umbrella in your suitcase just in case. If you like to use a weather app like I do, be prepared of the possibility that the weather will be nothing like it is predicted. You tend to notice the weatherman on TV reporting a 60% chance of rain one minute, then look back 30 minutes later to see that the chance of rain is 0%. Your day could start by needing a light jacket early in the morning, but by the evening you could be drenched in sweat the second you walk outside. It’s always a good idea to wear layers to take off as the day gets warmer—and to be prepared for any chilly session rooms. If you plan on doing a lot of walking around town, make sure you bring sunscreen with you and wear lightweight, cool clothing.

In addition to your clothes, there are a few other things we’d like you to bring to Congress. The San Antonio ONS Chapter is seeking donations of cold weather items and toiletries for the homeless as our community service project. Items like as gloves or scarves would be much appreciated, as well as the little complimentary bottles of shampoo and soap bars that you receive in the hotels. There will be a collection box located at the San Antonio ONS Chapter booth outside of room 221 in the convention center to drop off your donations. And while you’re at the chapter booth, don’t forget to pick up a little gift we have for you as a souvenir from this year’s Congress!
