Lake Michigan Center Event Policy
We are pleased to welcome you to the Lake Michigan Center (LMC), home of the Annis Water Resources Institute (AWRI). AWRI reserves the right to deny room usage to any organization or for any purpose that does not meet the following qualifications:
Grand Valley State University events, Annis Water Resources Institute donors, or organizations or events related to the mission of the Annis Water Resources Institute. The following guidelines have been established to aid in the success of your event.
By signing the contract, you agree to pay a cancellation fee equivalent to the full contracted room rate for the loss of business if your event is cancelled within ten business days of the planned function, as well as any additional costs already incurred.
In the unlikely event that damages to the room should occur as a result of your function, liability for damages to the premises will be charged to the representative making the arrangements, based on actual repair or replacement cost. The LMC cannot assume responsibility for the damage to, or loss of, any merchandise or articles left prior to, during, or following an event.
Fees, Billing and Deposits
Room rental is figured in four-hour increments, at a cost of $100 per four-hour block. Any event booking from 8:00am - 5:00pm will be charged for only eight hours. A security deposit equal to room rental is required, and will be credited at the conclusion of your event.
