Do you have something you can offer?APME and ASNE are joining forces for a live and silent auction to benefit both organizations during their joint conference Sept. 15-17 in Chicago.
An annual conference auction is a staple for APME and benefits the APME Foundation, which helps fund NewsTrain and other programs. ASNE will share the stage for perhaps the biggest auction to fund journalism initiatives in recent years.
The live auction – featuring vacation getaways and more – will be held during the opening night reception at the Tribune Tower. A small silent auction also will take place that night.
A larger silent auction – featuring donated books, regional gifts, jewelry, sports and event tickets and more – will be held during the conference at the Hyatt Regency, the conference headquarters.
How can you help now? We're looking for donations that will stand out.
