Rent a Meeting Space
Among its resources, the Schoenbaum Center offers affordable, versatile meeting space open to businesses and the community for reservation. Our two conference rooms, the Charleston Room and the Kanawha Valley Room, offer options for small gatherings and large events.

The spaces are perfect for:
- Board Meetings
- Staff Meetings
- Association Meetings
- Workshops and Trainings
- Strategic Planning
- Focus Groups
- Community Meetings
- Media Events
- Awards/Service Events
- Social After Hours Events
