Missouri Valley HQ Update

On Bernie Miklasz's show on 1380 AM, Missouri Valley Conference Commissioner Doug Elgin offered up the following tidbits of information on the conference's planned headquarters facility:

- The MVC is still negotiating with the City Treasurer's Office and the Missouri Development Finance Board to acquire the parking lot just south of the Scottrade Center.
- A major donor has stepped up and offered to help finance the construction; the MVC is also soliciting donations from major corporate sponsors. They're still "dotting the I's and crossing the T's."
- The facility will be a "media/meeting center" designed to raise the profile of the MVC.
- They hope to break ground at some point during 2008, preferably during the Arch Madness men's basketball tournament.
