Silent Auction

The Silent Auction is a fun opportunity for convention attendees and exhibitors to bid on items for a worthy cause. The Silent Auction will be held on February 27 and 28, 2018 in the exhibit hall during the convention. Proceeds benefit the Public Lands Alliance Education and Scholarship Fund, providing PLA member organizations with support to attend valuable trainings throughout the year.
