Hello colleagues,
It is time to start thinking about what you wish to contribute to the Silent
Auction this year. Each year at the ASIS&T Annual Meeting, the International
Information Issues SIG holds an International Reception and Silent Auction.
Donations from ASIS&T members are bid on by other members to raise money to
sponsor memberships for colleagues in countries for whom the membership fee
presents a financial hardship.
Donations in the past have included items from the personal
households/libraries of members (jewelry, books, etc.), offerings of
services (weekend at vacation home, etc.) and items created by members
specifically for the Silent Auction (paintings, knitted items, wine from
member vineyards, etc.). 
So let's be creative or clear out your attic. No item is too small or too
trivial. The bulk of funds are raised on items auctioned for less than $5!!
When in doubt, bring it along!
Thanks for thinking of the InfoShare Award and see you at the International
Best wishes,
Abebe Rorissa
