Conference 2017 Auction Donations

NARTS will host Action Auction—our lively live auction—on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at our 30th Annual Conference in Minneapolis, MN! Action Auction is a highly visible event held at our General Session following lunch. It also moves beyond the confines of the conference site, reaching out to the many visitors of NARTSWeb, our high-traffic Web site, on the Auction Preview page. Donating a product, service or gift certificate to Action Auction is a great way to highlight your company’s name.

Be Creative with Your Prize!
