The centerpiece of the conference will be at the Michigan League (911 North University Avenue, Ann Arbor) conveniently located near the center of campus. Originally opened in 1929 and classically designed, the Michigan League is a terrific location for meetings and special events. Located within the Michigan League building, the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre is an intimate, shoe-box theatre seating 644. Decorated with solid oak paneling that creates an atmosphere of elegance and charm, the Mendelssohn Theatre is perfect for conferences. Just down the hallway in the Michigan League are similarly designed, tasteful private dining rooms, meeting rooms and a large ballroom.
