Lee said reservations for facility use are expected to be “back-to-back” within the next six to nine months.
“At the Macon campus, we’ve had the Department of Revenue, a tax equalization group, University of Georgia’s Carl Vinson Institute, Georgia Department of Education and other organizations book in the beginning of the year. We’re accommodating and drawing people here from all over the state and region,” Lee said. “Our first and primary focus of the facility is continuing education, customized business and industry courses and professional development courses. The facility’s usage isn’t the primary focus of this center; it’s for us to offer and run all of these programs. When space is available, we encourage people to use it since this is a multi-purpose facility.”
The three-story, 70,000 square-foot facility is also the home to health care programs, customized industry training, an expanded library, a workforce development center, an information technology center for all CGTC campuses, and faculty and administrative offices. Local and state dignitaries, educators, students and community partners celebrated the grand opening of the $17 million facility Friday, April 12 with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
“We’re so excited about the space. There can be multiple events going on at the same time because of the flexibility of the quads,” Lee said. “I think this is a beautiful facility, and Baldwin County and the surrounding areas have embraced our mission. We’re brand new and we’re just getting in and getting comfortable, but there’s great potential for this facility.”
