The Society for the Study of Amphibians and Reptiles and the Herpetologist League will hold Live and Silent Auctions at the annual Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists in Norfolk, Virginia July 12th – 16th, 2023. We are glad to accept any herp-related donations, including but not limited to, frameable art (photographs, paintings, and line illustrations), books, music, glassware, jewelry, clothing, and gift certificates for Norfolk-area services/events during the meeting week. No live animals or products made from herps (e.g., books bound in snake skin). The SSAR Student Travel Committee organizes the Annual Silent Auction to raise money to fund the student travel awards to the annual JMIH. Increasing travel costs each year make it more difficult for students to attend meetings and become involved in societies. However, your continued support through donations to the silent auction helps offset these costs enabling students to attend, network, and present their research. The SSAR/HL Live Auction Committee organizes the live auction which also helps support student travel and provides additional support to both organizations. If you have any question about donating items to either auction (tax deductible for U.S. residents), please contact Dr. Vincent Farallo (email@example.com) for more information. Ideally donated items will be brought to the meeting directly. However, if transporting the item(s) is not possible, they may be shipped to a local host (Dr. Eric Hilton; firstname.lastname@example.org). Please e-mail Dr. Hilton and Dr. Farallo before sending any items to the address below.
