BCI moved over the weekend of April 24th to a new, larger building overlooking Austin's Wild Basin nature reserve. For the second time since relocating from the Milwaukee Public Museum in 1986, we outgrew our offices. This time, however, we have found a permanent home thanks to Founder's Circle member Bill Haber who purchased the building [BATS, Spring 1992]. We now have room to grow without another costly move, and our lease has been stabilized.
The Richmond Area Speleological Society, who has played an important role in BCI growth, funded the costs of the move, which included rewiring the new offices for our computer network and phone system. RASS also made possible BCI's initial move from Wisconsin to Texas and assisted with our move a year later to the quarters that had been our home for the past five years. Funding the many extra costs of moving has once again been an invaluable help.
Staff worked long, hard hours packing and unpacking. Linda Moore and Bryan Ockert gave up a weekend to oversee the move so that members and others did not experience an interruption in services.
Our phone and FAX number remain the same as well as our post office box. As always, direct all mail to P.O. Box 162603, Austin, Texas 78716. Our new street address for visitors is 500 Capital of Texas Highway North, Building 1, Suite 200, Austin, Texas 78746.
