Silent Auction: Once again we will have a Silent Auction at the fall conference. This year the money earned from the Silent Auction will be used for Student Scholarship Fund as well as for the Legislative Committee. For the Silent Auction basket, gather some goodies of your choice and put it into a basket or some type of container. You and your friends and co-workers can get together and choose things for a basket. You can do it alone! The basket may be given a theme but that is not a requirement. Some examples of themes from past conferences include: ISU, IOWA, Fine Motor Activities, Wine, Bath soaps, Kitchen recipes/ingredients, etc. Get those creative Occupational Therapy brains going!! Come up with something creative!! This year we will award a few fun awards for those who donate a basket!! For example: (1) Most Creative Basket; (2) Basket with the highest bid; and (3) Most Fun Basket. If you would like to donate a basket of goodies for our silent auction, please contact Cindy Campbell at 641-751-4344 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Benefits of Membership
Membership in IOTA is growing. This is great news since IOTA is a member-driven organization and relies on the members to operate. Membership dues are used to provide a fall conference, employing a lobbyist to protect consumers and the profession, scholarships, communication through website and newsletters, and encourages networking and professional growth.
