VACLEA Silent Auction

This year, the VACLEA Board has decided to hold the Silent Auction at the Winter Conference. The auction will be held during the day on Friday (the second day of the conference) instead of at night so that even if you are not staying overnight, you will be able to participate in bidding on any of the items during the day. This auction is our main generator of funds for the VACLEA Scholarship Program, which awards money to rising and current college students who are dependants of Virginia campus safety personnel. As the members of this organization work in higher education, you know how much it means for a student and their family to have the additional financial support.

In order to make this a success, VACLEA needs the support of the membership to provide items for the auction.  In past years, most members try to get items from their Bookstores, Athletic departments or other entities that have their own school logo or autographed sports items. You can also reach out to any business in your area where they might want to donate an item for the association. If you have an individual item that you would like to donate, that would also be appreciated.

We would also like to get a challenge coin from all agencies that currently have one. The goal will be to have all coins put together in one item for bid.

If you have items that you will be bringing, please send Scott Austin an email (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) on or before Friday, December 22nd indicating what the item is AND if you will be bringing a challenge coin. He will need to know in advance so as to be able to set up the auction list. Once he gets the final list, he will send out a reminder email with details on how to get the item to him at the conference.

The VACLEA Board and staff thank you in advance for your support of the association we'll see everyone in January!
