 2017 Silent Auction:
As in years past the Association will be hosting a Silent Auction at the State Conference to raise funds for scholarships. The Association has given scholarships to members to attend
national conferences such as the International Association of Emergency Managers Conference, and provides funds to Colorado residents to attend the Colorado Emergency Management
Conference (CEMC) with 1 year of CEMA Membership. 
 
The Silent Auction relies on contributions from Emergency Managers, first responder agencies, vendors and outside private partners. A wide variety of items are offered in the auction
such as, art work, ski tickets, jewelry, tickets to sporting events, food baskets, books, preparedness kits – the list goes on. The fund-raising silent auction will open at the start of the
conference, and close at 6:00 pm Wednesday, March 1.
