|Author Auction Sign Up|
As you may know, the Author Auction is the primary source of funding for the GCLS Scholarship Fund. Over the last few years we have been able to offer over 40 scholarships to attendees who would otherwise not be able to join us at the conference. This is the only formal fundraiser for this Scholarship fund at this time and, thus, is the main source of donations.
This year, the Author Auction will be done in a different format.
Our plan is to present the auction as a Silent Auction. We will have a dedicated table in the vendor room with prominent signage highlighting the Auction. We will have a minimum bid (to be determined) and what you offer can include more than just the first dance (i.e. having coffee, providing editing expertise, lunch, etc). We will promote the auction throughout the conference including introductions of the authors who participate.
We hope that you feel comfortable participating and will have some fun while helping to raise money for our Conference Scholarship program.
