    Where is your meeting in the Helms Bldg- it is huge. Don’t wish to wander around looking for you.

      It is on the South East corner, at the opposite end of the parking lot from HD Buttercup. The cross street there is Hutchinson (first street East of Helms). You can park in front of HD Buttercup and walk through the parking lot and hang a little left before leaving the lot. Look for the CCBC signs.
