Cancellation Policy: 


WALA puts on a silent and live auction during the banquet Friday night of the conference to raise money for student scholarships.  

Please do not forget to bring items for the auction.

We depend on conference attendees and programs to make our auction a success.  Auction item ideas: wine, gift cards, memorabilia, arts and crafts, small themed baskets, etc.

There will be a live auction where WALA will auction off six large baskets. Each region is responsible to orchestrate these items and make sure they are delivered to the conference. Theme ideas: Spa package, golf package, wine tasting, bed and breakfast package, etc. Feel free to contact your region reps to contribute to the baskets.  

All of the money collected from the auction goes toward student scholarships issued at the end of the school year.  The past two years we have been very light on auction items and income for scholarships, so it would be nice to see a great supply of silent and live auction items to support our students in their future educational goals.
