Meeting Room Policy

    The Louisiana Engineering Foundation (LEF) has meeting room space available at the Engineering Center at 9643 Brookline Ave., Baton Rouge, LA.  The primary purpose of the conference room is to provide facilities for activities and programs related to the LEF's goals and objectives.  The conference room may be scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
    The fact that the LEF has authorized a group to meet in the conference room does not constitute endorsement or sponsorship of the organization or the views expressed by the group as a whole or by individual participants in the meetings.
