Hello colleagues,

Don't forget to bring items to Columbus for the Silent
Auction (or give to another member who will be attending)!

Each year at the ASIST Annual Meeting the International
Information Issues SIG holds an International Reception and
Silent Auction. Donations from ASIST members are bid on by
other members to raise money to sponsor memberships for
colleagues in countries for whom the membership fee is
financially out of reach.

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 get 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 it doubt, bring it along!

  You can simply drop off your items at the International
Reception between 6.30-8p. Thanks for thinking of the
InfoShare Award and our information colleagues around the

 Best wishes,

 Abebe Rorissa
