Meeting Rooms


Welcome to the meeting room page. Each use of a meeting room at Woodmere requires a signed agreement acknowledging TADL Board policy on Use of Meeting Rooms.  You may be asked to provide documentation to assure compliance with some TADL policy elements such as to show non for profit status or non-partisan status.
