News & Notes

The planned renovations of the 300 Hammond Pond Parkway building are going to resume next week, right after graduation.  Once contractors start working in the lobby area, the main entrance to the building will be inaccessible.  Those planning to use our office during the last ten days of May may have to enter around the back of the building (at the opposite end from the Parkway) where there are two doors that access the second floor.  They can then walk down one flight of stairs to access our office.

From June through early September, the office will be essentially unavailable because of construction.  Part of the construction will be to renovate a location for our office, just off the lobby on the opposite side of the main first floor entrance from our meeting room.  When our BCARF schedule resumes after the summer on September 12, new audio-visual equipment (including large, flat-screen monitors to display computer projections) will have been installed in the meeting room to the right of the entrance and we will have a new office on the right.
