NIA will host its 3rd Silent Auction during this year’s 61st Annual Convention and WIACO. This popular biennial event offers an evening of competitive bidding and fundraising for NIA’s Foundation for Education, Training, and Industry Advancement, along with a charitable organization. This year, net proceeds from the Silent Auction will be split evenly between the NIA Foundation for Education, Training, and Industry Advancement and Stand Up To Cancer.
The 2016 Silent Auction Co-Chairs Dan Bofinger (Winroc-SPI) and John Lamberton (IREX Contracting Group), and the rest of the Silent Auction Task Force are actively seeking donations.

The National Insulation Association’s Foundation for Education, Training, and Industry Advancement promotes the benefits of commercial and industrial insulation to outside audiences such as specifiers, architects, energy managers, plant operators, building owners, facility managers, government agencies, and others. The goals of the Foundation are to establish NIA as the recognized authority on the insulation industry and, at the same time, increase awareness of the need and benefits of insulation.
