2016 Emergency Management Conference Needs Silent Auction Items

Colorado Emergency Management Association Silent Auction Benefits the Colorado Emergency Management Association’s Scholarship Program

CEMA logo

A unique piece of the Colorado Emergency Management Conference is the silent auction. The proceeds provide scholarships for emergency managers and others in public safety whose budgets may not allow them to attend the conference.

The silent auction relies on contributions from emergency managers, first response agencies and conference vendors. A wide variety of items is offered in the auction: art work, ski tickets, jewelry, tickets to sporting events, food baskets, books, preparedness kits – the list goes on.

The fund-raising silent auction will be held during the conference, March 8 – 10, 2016.

Here’s how to participate

  1. Donate any item, group of unrelated items, or a ‘theme basket’ that you think other conference attendees would like to own. 
  2. Vendors and business owners: Your donation may display organization labels, business cards, and other marketing materials. 
  3. Browse the silent auction tables at the conference.  There will be lots of fun items that are sure to catch your eye.
A direct result of the generous donations over the past few years is the number of people receiving scholarships: 21 in 2012, 17 in 2013, and 37 in 2014. During the 2015 conference, the silent auction raised $3,070 which will fund an additional 15 scholarships for the 2016 conference.

Please help us continue this success by donating to the silent auction today.
