Where should attendees go to make private phone calls?
Your meeting guests can make private phone calls in the cedar phone booths near the kitchen or in the building lobby.  Please refrain from taking calls in common areas or near our members' desks.

Can I bring in outside catering?
You may bring in outside catering.  Food must be set up in your reserved room or area, not in common spaces, and your caterer must pick up any leftovers, equipment, and excessive garbage.  Pack it in, pack it out.  Guests who don't comply with this policy will be subject to a $100 additional charge.  Please alert staff promptly of any spills or messes.
