Support for the SOA Spring 2016 Silent Auction

Dear Society of Ohio Archivists:

We hope you’re doing well!

As you know, the Society of Ohio Archivists will once again be holding out annual meeting this spring, on May 20, 2016, at the Quest Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio. We appreciate the community’s generous in the past, and we’re looking for support again for the silent auction. All proceeds benefit the SOA student scholarship program, giving aspiring archivists the opportunity to attend the annual meeting and begin networking with those in their field, thereby encouraging greater involvement in SOA and the archives and preservation field as a whole.

We are also accepting support in the form of sponsorships. These levels are Gold, Silver, and Bronze, as well as sponsorship of the Silent Auction. Sponsorship will come along with benefits according to the level, and the breakdown has been included at the end of this letter.

Donors will be recognized in the meeting program as well as with the item(s) on the Silent Auction table.

We sincerely appreciate your consideration of our request and hope you will choose to continue to support of the Society of Ohio Archivists. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Shelley Blundell, our Educational Programming Committee chair, at the email address listed in the signature line, or any of the Silent Auction coordinators listed in this letter.
