Silent Auction 


A very easy way to increase your visibility at the conference is to donate an item to the Silent Auction.  You can donate an item of any value, although items in value of $100 or more definitely get the most attention.  The item can be something directly related to your product (a free educational program, a 1-hour Skype session, books, or a free registration to your next event), or it can be something completely unrelated (gift cards, electronic items, vacation related items, fashion accessories, or even that weird wedding gift that's been sitting around). 

Either way, we make sure to note your donation alongside the item on the auction table, and you support the educational mission of NGLA.
