View the calendar of availability. Please understand that we host only one event per day in Founders Hall. We can make an exception to this rule when there are two smaller events scheduled that have a setup requiring use of only half the room. When an event setup is only half the room, it will be indicated on the calendar.
Occasionally, late afternoon/evening meetings will mean that early mornings meetings cannot be accommodated the next day, because there is not adequate time to adjust the room setup. If your meeting requires a start time prior to 8 a.m., please call or email to confirm availability.
