PCMA SE Convening Leaders Silent Auction

Kathy Dunn-Sullivan

As a new member of PCMA who was looking for ways to become a more active participant, I was so excited to be asked to join the Sponsorship Committee this year! My first task was to solicit items for the 2014 Southeast Chapter Silent Auction, which took place at Convening Leaders in Boston. I began by contacting the businesses and individuals who had donated items the previous year. I was so pleased at the warm responses I received from so many who were more than happy to support us once again! I was also happy to have the opportunity to secure more donations by reaching out to my own industry contacts. It was great way to connect (or reconnect) with so many involved in our industry, play an active role in PCMA, and have fun while doing it!

Brenda Dempsey did an excellent job of organizing and hosting our Southeast Chapter party at Convening Leaders, where we conducted our Silent Auction. Many thanks to PRG for providing the AV equipment, and to the ACVB for sponsoring the open bar! It was a great turnout, and the best news is that we exceeded our goal! There were so many wonderful items for sale, I even bid on two (and won) myself! 

If you would like to confirm your donation for 2015, please contact me at: Kdunn@expoplus.com.

Can’t wait for next year!
