Conference 2018
Meeting Center

Grand Valley State University's L.V. Eberhard Center alongside the picturesque Grand River 


In order to provide the best possible conference experience, we are moving our workshops, lunches and receptions to a facility that's more flexible than a hotel and should allow a greater range of activities, including the loud and messy ones!

The Eberhard Center is just about 250 steps from the Holiday Inn Hotel.
