What’s New?

Conference Room

The conference room in the Center seats 40-65 depending on the configuration of the tables and chairs and is available for outside use at a fee of $100 for a 4-hour period or $200 for the day. The room has Internet access, conference phone, whiteboards and a multi-media projector. Contact the director to discuss your conference room needs and book a date and time.

Office Space

Office space is available in the AEC by application to start-up businesses and companies looking to take the next step. Offices are approximately 150 square feet and are available as single or doubles, or as a package in a suite.

Space is available as a fixed lockable office or a business owner may also lease open space on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Fixed office leases come with use of the conference room at no extra charge while open space leases offer a reduced rate for conference room use.

Contact the Center to schedule a time to discuss your entrepreneurial activities and an option that might work for your business.
