As always, we will have a live and silent auction at this years JMIH in New Orleans to help fund student travel to attend future meetings. If you would like to donate anything to the live or silent auction you can bring the items directly to the meeting or send them ahead of time. Items should be related to herpetology in some way, however we can not auction off any animals or items taken from animals. Typically items include books, art, clothing, trinkets, etc.
If you would like to send items ahead of time please send them to the following address:
Attn: SSAR Live Auction
Southeastern Louisiana University
Dept. of Biological Sciences
Hammond, LA 70402
We would like donators to include the following information with their donation (typed, if possible):
- Name of Donator
- Title of the donation, or a brief description of the donation or its history.
- Estimated value of the donation, or purchase price of the item.
- Contact information for donator
- Preference (if any) for the live or silent auction
If you plan on bringing an item to the meeting please find Samantha Kahl (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Vincent Farallo (email@example.com) once you have arrived. Preferably send us an e-mail beforehand so we have an idea of what to expect and can also arrange a time for you to drop off the item.
Also if you would like to volunteer to help with the live auction including auction runners during the auction itself, item setup before the auction, and people to watch auction items during the conference, please contact Samantha Kahl (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We look forward to seeing everyone in New Orleans!
