The receptionist will need the following:
Your basic contact information (name, address, mobile and/or home numbers).

Or, if preferred, you may visit the Center in-person to purchase your room reservation by check, cash or credit.
If You See "CHALLENGE THIS HOLD" on a Desired Date
A meeting room 'hold' indicates potential interest by an established group planning a major event or consistent small events. However, holds are just 'penciled-in' notes on our calendar which are unpaid and unofficial.
Any hold may be 'challenged' at any time by other groups desiring to reserve it.
Once a challenge is issued, the group with the hold must decide to either A) reserve (pay for) the room being challenged, or B) release their hold.
If the group being challenged releases their hold, the challenging group must promptly reserve the room.
