There are a lot of changes going on at MSCPA and we want them all to be good for you and for the organization. That includes our office space.
As many of you might remember, we moved to our current location five years ago. We were excited about the space we designed and the opportunities it held for more member contact. However, things beyond our control have changed the quality of this work space.
When we moved into our Ninth Avenue location, there was plenty of parking. Full occupancy in the rest of the building and the newly constructed building next door took all our extra parking options. This made it very hard to use the beautiful conference room we built.
Our conference room really is a thing of beauty. We can host meetings for up to 30 people. It’s extremely functional with a large screen tv wired to our computer connections. Sadly, it has become nearly 900 square feet of unusable space at $12.85 a square foot. So . . .
WE ARE MOVING! Our new physical address will be in the New York Building, 46 North Last Chance Gulch; our mailing address will once again be PO Box 138, Helena, MT 59624-0138. Our anticipated move date is April 30th. It’s downtown on the walking mall with a sky bridge to the parking garage. The board room in the new space will accommodate 16 people, have beautiful natural lighting, offices for all the staff plus a good work space and it’s less expensive!
While we aren’t looking forward to the move itself, we are looking forward to the new accessible space and we feel it’s the responsible thing to do as stewards of your dues dollars.
This is another big change for the Society and I thank you in advance for your understanding. If you have questions about this move, I am always happy to talk to you. One of the things that will stay the same is our members are welcome to use our board room at no cost and we are delighted when members drop by. Stay tuned for more information about our new space and be sure to come visit us.
