The auction is made up of whatever we want to buy/sell/share! You can donate a service (bread baking classes), something you’ve made (hand-sewn notebooks), or something you’ve purchased (restaurant gift card, local artist’s teapot). Just remember that your donation includes shipping or a hand-off at the conference or a drive-by meet-up. You can donate items to the auction using this form–it’s very easy! For step-by-step instructions, see our Auction Donation How-To guide. Proceeds go toward the chapter’s fundraising campaign, which includes annual support for the Caroline Backlund Award fund for student conference attendance  ($1,000) and the ARLIS/NA Annual Conference contribution ($750).

Keep an eye on new auction listings, and please encourage your colleagues and friends and family to contribute and help make this auction a great success!
