East Central University’s new Chickasaw Business and Conference Center building includes the Business and Conference Center (BCC). A much-needed facility at East Central University and in the region, this business conference center serves many functions for both the university and the community.
Partially funded from a FEMA grant and contributions from the ECU Foundation, Ada Jobs Foundation and the City of Ada, the conference wing of the facility is equipped to serve the community in times of dire emergency as a resource and command center. During non-emergency times this wing of the building is run by a professional Conference Center Director, attached to the Center for Continuing Education and Community Services.
Attracting a business-oriented clientele is the goal of the BCC. However, the BCC will also serve ECU and the City of Ada in various capacities. Many events which have heretofore not been able to be hosted in Ada due to lack of modern meeting facilities and capacity limitations will find what we hope will be a permanent home in this facility. Through leveraging all the resources in a customizable format through East Central University, the BCC strives to out-do the competition in pricing, service, and customer loyalty.
