Silent Auction to Benefit Traveling Presenters
Friday, October 17 | 6:30 pm - 8:00 p.m.
One of the highlights of every Evaluation conference is Friday night's Silent Auction. Coordinated by AEA's International and Cross-Cultural Evaluation Topical Interest Group, the proceeds benefit AEA's International Travel Awards and are used to offset travel expenses for presenters who reside in developing countries or countries in transition and to encourage their participation internationally.
Drop by on Friday, October 17, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm before you head out for the night. You will enjoy it and it's for a great cause!
If you would like to donate something to be bid on at the Silent Auction, please feel free to bring it along and drop it at the AEA conference registration desk. If you have any queries, please email email@example.com.
