Rental Policies

  • PAYMENT: Rental fees will be billed on the 1st and 15th of the month and payment must be made in advance. HSDC accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and corporate or personal checks for payment.
  • SET UP & CLEAN UP PROCEDURES: All persons or organizations using the facility must leave it in the original clean and undamaged condition, including all equipment and kitchen supplies. Groups are responsible for providing their own supplies, including coffee, sugar, napkins, disposable plates and silverware. The user may move and rearrange the tables and chairs, but furniture must be returned to its original position at the end of the rental, with all surfaces clean and all garbage disposed of. The user is responsible for leaving the conference room in good order and is financially responsible for any damage to or loss of HSDC property. Please note that no push pins, nails, tape, or other alterations are allowed in the Conference Center or on any of the surrounding walls.
  • DISRUPTION: The user is responsible for ensuring that the scheduled activity does not disturb HSDC clients, other building occupants, or interfere with work-related activities of staff.
  • FOOD/CATERING: Food and beverages provided by the users are allowed in the meeting rooms. The group renting the conference room must clean up the room and discard their own trash in designated receptacles. Any catered dishes and/or food needs to be picked up by the user and stored in the catering kitchen. Caterers must be instructed to pick up dishes and food by 9:00am the following morning.
  • ACCESS: Conference rooms are only available for rent during business hours, unless special accommodations are made in advance. In the event the room is rented outside of regular business hours, an HSDC representative will be present during opening and lock-up for an additional $50.00 fee. Socorro Moore is the after-hours emergency contact; she can be reached at 206-686-3261.
