Tri Class Auction
July 16, 2018
The 2018 tri class auction is in need of donated items!
The 2018 Tri-Class Auction is where all students have a unique opportunity to give back to the WCMS Scholarship Fund. On Monday, July 16th, please join us in the Edmunds Ballroom for a special evening including a silent auction, a live auction, and other exciting activities!
But every Sigma, Rho and Pi classmate can also participate RIGHT NOW. Our online Amazon Wish List and Pay Pal donation channels make it easy for you, your credit union, and your colleagues to make an immediate impact. You will be supporting future credit union leaders no matter how much you decide to contribute. Whether its $5, $25, $100 or more, all types of cash contributions and donated auction items are welcome!
We want every student to experience the opportunity to give back to the one organization created exclusively for transforming credit union employees into leaders and leaving our industry with a legacy. Thank you for your consideration – and remember that every donation and contribution counts whether small or large!

RHO CLASS GOALS
Participation = Collect a minimum of 200 items to be auctioned. Have confirmation of 150 items by July 1st. Ask each Rho classmate to reach out to their CU and/or vendor for a donation, as the more we can get donated will result in higher donations. Our goal will include 80% of the items being donated.
Financial = We will raise $25,000 in net proceeds.
Collaboration = Recruit a minimum of 10 students from Pi and Sigma classes to assist in auction tasks.
Communication = The main committee will have monthly status calls. Subcommittees will determine best form of communication (phone or email) and will provide main committee updates on monthly calls to ensure forward movement of project. Event communication will be developed by committee and provided to all students prior to school arrival and again during Welcome Walk.
