MEETING ROOM POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Reservations for a one-day event/meeting must be made at least two business days in advance of the reservation request, unless otherwise noted. Early submission of your reservation request form improves the likelihood of identifying preferred/available space.
All event request submissions must receive prior approval by the Director where the space is located and MCDA Operations Coordinator for the Institutes and Senior Secretary for Peabody Hall. All attendees should check in and sign the guest book upon arrival.
If the space is not found in a clean and orderly state, attendees should notify a staff member immediately upon arrival. Failure to do so may result in your organization being held responsible for a violation of the policies below. The space must be returned to the original set-up that you found it.
Cancellation of a reservation should be confirmed by contacting the Operations Coordinator at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled start time of the reservation, whenever possible.
Due to noise ordinances, events held at the Institutes that include the use of outdoor speakers must not go beyond the hour of 10:00 pm. After this time, noise levels should be kept to a minimum by moving speakers/loud sounds inside of the Institute.
Meetings should start and end at the scheduled time. This should include the time needed to restore facilities to its original state. Meetings, programs, events may not be extended without the approval of the Director or area staff.
Visitors/guests are welcome to use the waiting room areas. For events held during normal hours of operation noise levels within the waiting room area should be kept to a minimum as to not impede regular business operations and/or any other programs/events.
