Live and Silent Auctions

NAAA Ag Aviation Expo
December 4–7, 2017 ♦ Savannah, Ga.

Thank You 2016 NAAA Auction Donors & Bidders!

The Live Auction at the NAAA Convention & Exposition continues to be one of the most popular and successful fundraisers for the Association.
When it comes to high-stakes entertainment, the intrigue, drama and excitement of NAAA’s Live Auction is hard to beat, which is why it has become one of the signature events at each convention. The Live Auction on “Convention Tuesday” is very important to NAAA from a fundraising standpoint, so enjoy the reception food and beverages and bring your checkbooks. Shhhh! NAAA also holds a Silent Auction each year. Bidding opens on Tuesday and closes on Wednesday afternoon.
The Live Auction continues to be one of the most popular and financially successful fundraisers for the Association. But NAAA could not accomplish this without the support of our many friends and allies. We are grateful to our Allied Industry, State Associations and aerial applicator supporters. All auction donations, big or small, are greatly appreciated, and NAAA recognizes all donations in Association publications and on the NAAA website. The earlier you come forward, the more exposure you'll get. Live Auction reception sponsored by Syngenta.
