The John A. Spitzer Conference Center is an integral part of the Lorain County Community College (LCCC) learning environment. It provides a large multi-purpose work center for the students and the surrounding community. A number of services are provided, such as meeting space, catering, technology, Wifi, videoconferencing, videotaping, photocopying, and much more, says Jeffery Sherman of LCCC.
The Spitzer Center was built in 1995 and was dedicated to auto dealership entrepreneur John A. Spitzer in honor of his leadership and business know how, not to mention devotion to the LCCC community. Since then, the conference center has held a number of events for the Lorain County community, such as business meetings, corporate training and development, non-profit and governmental administrative meetings, public forums, K-12 training programs and many others. The variety of events is possible due to the flexibility of the 22,000-square-foot conference center.
The conference center can take advantage of the many resources that surround a college campus. The Stocker Center, with its auditorium, is attached to the Spitzer center along with access to equipment and technology from other departments, such as the business school and the technology center. It is easier to hold conferences and meetings with several types of visual aides and tools.
The Spitzer Center is a large part of the Lorain County community. Many students and businesses are drawn here. They are so much a part of the community that on November 15 they are holding the Lorain County Community College â€œGolden 30â€ program, which will recognize the countyâ€™s fastest growing companies. The Spitzer Center, being both a large conference center and part of a major community college, stays involved in the business world as well as student life.
The Spitzer Center is able to bring events and businesses the professional setting they need when planning a conference with the amenities they provide, through features such as teleconferencing by satellite links, videotaping of conferences for viewing on later dates, and on site catering. â€œIt provides a professional forum for personal, professional, corporate, educational, non-profit, governmental, and workforce development activities,â€ says Sherman.
Lorain County Community College is an important part of Northeast Ohio and the Spitzer Center is a large part of that. The conference center merges both the business world and the students working to get there. The John A. Spitzer Conference Center is a great place to make connections and advance your career or education.
