Program Center Kitchen
All groups, organizations and individuals using the OIE Program Center kitchen must read and agree to the Rules for Use:
- Pre-event: label food and store in proper location
- Bring any necessary supplies to cook, bake or eat with, as OIE has a very limited supply of utensils and dishes
- End event at scheduled time (including clean-up)
- Leave kitchen and function areas clean (OIE provides dish detergent and other cleaning supplies):
- washing dishes and tables used
- cleaning counters and stovetop
- mopping kitchen floor
- vacuum (if needed)
- Do not leave any food in ovens or on top of stove
- Bring containers and/or plastic wrap for any leftovers or take-away
- Do not leave anything behind – anything left in the fridge or in the OIE Program Center becomes the property of OIE and may be discarded
The OIE Program Center can be arranged in a variety of configurations with a maximum of 50 chairs. Please indicate which seating configuration you prefer on the program center reservation form. All images below are reflective of the Program Center as a whole.
If you are holding a smaller meeting and prefer to utilize either the north or south half of the room, please still indicate your room configuration preference and the number attendees so that we can arrange the room appropriately to meet your needs.
