CFI Expansion Plans

by Richard Hull

The following article is from the Secular Humanist Bulletin, Volume 20, Number 1.

Thanks to a generous gift from a long-time subscriber to Free Inquiry and Life member of the Council for Secular Humanism, Colonel Jess, architects have been engaged for designing a much-needed addition to the Center for Inquiry–International in Amherst, New York. The addition will double the library and office space of the current building and will create a multipurpose conference center that can seat groups of up to three hundred. Groundbreaking for the $1.5 million structure will occur during the summer of 2004, with completion scheduled for 2005.

The building, which will also feature a garden courtyard and a controlled-climate rare books room and document archive, will offer numerous naming opportunities for contributors to the building fund. Visualizations of the new facility will be available later this month.

Sherry Rook, a professional grant writer and conference organizer, has graciously consented to join the staff as development officer to assist in developing the funding for this and the other projects encompassed in the New Future Fund, which seeks to raise $26.26 million in support for the many operations of CFI. She joins Richard Hull, retired philosophy professor and entrepreneur, who serves as senior development officer at the Amherst facility. 

Richard Hull is development officer for CFI–International.
