Auction

ACI Auction Night

One of the highlights of the annual conference is the ACI Auction Night. Not only is it a fun social activity for conference attendees, it’s an important fund-raiser that helps defray the cost of putting on the conference each year.

 

How it Works

 

The event includes raffles, a silent auction and a live auction. Up for grabs are all sorts of items – t-shirts, art prints, outdoor gear and agency SWAG. The live auction offers higher-end items, like guided hunting or fishing excursions, overnight stays at state parks and more!

 

Where do the items come from?

 

Why, YOU, of course! (Here comes the sales pitch.) The success of the ACI Auction depends on the raffle tickets you buy and, more importantly, the items you provide.

 

We’re asking for your help in providing the types of items described above. If your agency has a citizen-support foundation, ask for their help, perhaps in underwriting the cost of a guided excursion. If you partner with an outdoor retailer, ask for merchandise. All kinds of SWAG is welcome; nothing is too small.

 

In 2018 the auction brought in a record $10,600! We need your help to raise the bar!

 

ACI Auction Contacts

 

Inquiries about the 2020 auction should be directed to Craig Sanchez, Assistant Chief of Education, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish at 505-222-4713 or by email at craig.sanchez@state.nm.us or Jenifer Wisniewski, Chief, Outreach and Communications, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency at 629-204-0030 or by email at Jenifer.Wisniewski@tn.gov.
