A staple at the NASPA IV-West Regional conference is the Silent Auction. Items are graciously donated for conference attendees to bid on during the conference. While the silent auction provides an opportunity for conference attendees to purchase unique items, the impact is far greater. All proceeds from the silent auction go back into the region via the NASPA IV-West Travel Assistance Program. The Travel Assistance Program allows members to request funding to assist in costs associated with traveling to Regional and National NASPA events. When you participate in the auction, you are allowing IV-West members to be heard throughout the region and nation!
Items that have been donated in the past:
- Sports tickets
- Theater tickets
- Weekend or weeklong getaways at vacation homes
- Nights out in the city
- Handmade or homemade items
- Toys for pets or children
- Gift cards to common restaurants and other establishments
- Gift baskets
- Holiday-themed gifts
- Professional development workshops
The possibilities are endless!
Silent Auction items will be accepted on-site, but can also be mailed to location for your convenience. Whether you are a conference attendee or not, we encourage you to help support NASPA IV-West by donating items to the conference silent auction.
If you wish to donate, please contact Josh Doak, Conference Committee Chair for Volunteers and Special Events, at email@example.com.
