2021 Silent Auction


SIETAR USA conference participants always enjoy finding unique and useful items at the Silent Auction, so prepare now to donate and be sure to visit the Auction at the conference!

The Silent Auction proceeds provide scholarships to the conference for those interculturalists/DEI practitioners who might not otherwise be able to attend, such as students and university employees or volunteers in community-based non-profit organizations. Attending the conference helps these individuals gain valuable knowledge, skills, and contacts in the field while contributing their perspectives and experiences.

You can donate items, products, or services to the auction. Popular items include:

    • New or used collectible books (perhaps with an autograph)
    • Videos or training tools
    • Certificates for consultations, trainings, certification courses or workshops
    • Arts & crafts or other goods you’ve collected while globetrotting
    • Your own artwork
    • Collections of world music, scarves or jewelry
    • And special mementos or theme baskets from your hometown, region, or country are often the first items to go!
Suggested minimum item value: $20

To donate your items, please contact the Silent Auction Team ahead of time and pledge items(s) with the description, value, and donor information for proper display. All items can be shipped in advance to Omaha (between September 30-October 6) or brought with you to the conference if you are attending. You may download/print the form found at this link: 2021 Silent Auction Donation Form; email the completed form to silentauction@sietarusa.org.

PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to accept donations after 5:00 pm on Thursday, October 7th, 2021.

For ask questions or to get further information please contact the Chair of the Silent Auction Team at silentauction@sietarusa.org. We thank you, in advance, for your generosity in supporting our scholarship program!
