How to Rent the Alliance’s Studio, Meeting Rooms, and Conference and Advocacy Center


The Alliance for Excellent Education’s (the Alliance’s) conference center, meeting rooms, and high-definition studio offer a premier venue for nonprofit and advocacy organizations to advance their work. The Alliance has more than 2,000 square feet of meeting space with state-of-the-art audiovisual capabilities—including videoconferencing, teleconferencing, and live web streaming—designed to help organizations bring their messages to larger audiences, develop sophisticated video presentations that promote their work, and boost engagement with members and clients.

The spacious Gerard and Lilo Leeds Conference and Advocacy Center, two smaller meeting rooms, and the Alliance’s high-definition video production and broadcast studio are available for rent to nonprofit and for-profit organizations Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Alliance will consider requests to use its facilities outside of those hours on a case-by-case basis.

To schedule a tour of the facilities or to inquire about room availability, contact Aharon Charnov (202) 828-0828 or acharnov@all4ed.org.
