AERS silent auction

Get those (virtual) paddles ready! AERS is pleased to announce the return of one of our favorite in-person conference events by once again hosting a Silent Auction at the spring 2024 meeting.  All proceeds from the Silent Auction go to support our student endowment fund, with provides support to attend AERS and CERF conferences through travel grants, as well as to students conducting novel research through an (in-development) small research grant.  

Auction items will be displayed on site, but bids will be taken here on a virtual platform. You do not have to attend the AERS meeting to bid, but you must have someone attending on your behalf to pick up items in person .  Bidding will open the day before the conference on Wednesday March 20th . Bidding will end Friday, March 22nd at 6 PM.

All items must be paid for and picked up in person by the morning break on Saturday.  If you are the high bidder, funds will be automatically charged to your card at the close of the auction

Our goal for this meeting is to raise $1000 to support the student endowment fund.  You can help us by:

  • Donating an item to auction off
    • AERSians are an eclectic bunch and a wide variety of items are appealing to our attendees.  Popular items at past auctions have included: books, reprints of papers, artwork by AERS members, local food and drink, AERS/CERF swag, gift baskets, and University/lab branded items.  Think of things you may have around the house/office and consider doing some spring cleaning to benefit our students
  • Bidding on items at the meeting
    • Everyone loves the excitement of an auction, and knowing you are helping a good cause is part of the fun.  Even if you don't win, you still are helping by upping the winning bid

Please let our Student Affairs Rep, Leslie, know of any items you wish to donate no later than March 10th.  The team will need time to catalog all items and input them into the online bidding platform.  Stay tuned to this page for more information about the bidding process as the date gets closer.

Not attending in person or auctions not your thing?  Consider supporting our Student Endowment Fund by making a one time financial contribution

Goal: $1,000.00
Collected: $0.00
