Let’s Get the Bidding Started!

The NBT annual silent auction will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 24, during the welcome reception at the FMA Annual Meeting. Here, over 300 conference attendees will get the opportunity to haggle over the most coveted items or services offered. Everything from home items to sports memorabilia, conference passes to jewelry, artistic creations to techy electronics. Past contributions even included a time-share stay in Mexico!

NEW this year! This year we are accepting donations of processing or fabricating services offered by companies. Examples of manufacturing services that can be donated to this auction are: pickling, slitting, fabricating time, transportation services, ad space, etc.

The annual silent auction not only grows the camp and scholarship programs,  it also gives the auction donors a way to get their company brand in front of industry colleagues, coupled with a nice tax deduction.

We invite you to consider donating an item or company service to the auction. Feel free to be creative and use your imagination. Questions? Contact Diane Engel at 815-381-1338 or dianee@fmanet.org
