No such thing as a "small" meeting in Suffolk.

Some of the most valuable, productive projects and policies are derived from small groups of focused individuals. Some groups meet regularly to discuss common interests and events. Whatever your reason for gathering, Suffolk is the place to host your “small” meeting. With a variety of meeting space selections, including a few that are “off the beaten path,” we are certain Suffolk has the ideal location for your function.
