The primary event space for large gatherings, lectures, and conferences, the Martin-Lacy Lecture Hall is highly adaptable to the needs of our community. The Martin-Lacy Lecture Hall features room dividers that temporarily descend from the ceiling, allowing for the space to be divided into three separate meeting spaces which can be used simultaneously and separately with acoustic and technological provisions built in the design.

*Please note that catering may be provided by any licensed, insured vendor. May also use prepared platters if not utilizing full-service catering.
