Visitors celebrate the grand re-opening of our Bordini Center.

Last week we held a “grand re-opening” of our Bordini Center for both the community and college staff.  After 30 years of serving the workplace training needs of thousands of employers and organizations, as well as hundreds of thousands of their employees and customers, this well-used facility really needed renovation.  Through this process an entirely new configuration of space was achieved to better serve our customers for the next 30 years, including a much larger conference room that will seat about 400 people and added technologies to several training labs.

It was great to have over 300 people stop by to see what the new Bordini Center has to offer.  If you haven’t had a chance to visit there recently, be sure to stop by.
