CoSA Silent Auction
The Silent Auction is back! Previous silent auctions have been a key fundraiser for CoSA educational activities and this year we’re aiming for similar success in Nashville, TN, but we need your help providing auction items!

To help make this year another success, here are some helpful tips for popular auction items:

  • Think small - items that are easy to pack or easily consumed in the course of the meeting
  • Share a taste of your state - what food items are unique and special to your state?
  • Share your state's unique stories, history, food, or drink with your colleagues!
  • Snacks and small bottles of alcohol are always popular items!
Please help CoSA’s educational activities by donating! More information about the donation process will be made available soon.
