A note from the CEO….
Earlier this year, the Benefit Auction Summit Committee began planning for the 2012 Benefit Auction Summit to take place in September. Once a site was selected, (Denver, Colorado), staff secured a hotel for the event to take place on September 23 -25. At the time, we recognized that the event would end on the same day that Yom Kippur begins. We thought that as long as the event ended well before sundown, we could still accommodate those who celebrate this sacred holiday. We were wrong.
We now understand that those who observe this holiday cannot travel after sundown. Though we cannot re-schedule this event, we regret that it may prevent some benefit auctioneers from attending or requiring them to leave early from our most advanced training for this group. For this, we apologize.
If you are able to attend the Benefit Auction Summit but must leave to prepare for religious observance, please notify us and we will offer you a 25% fee reduction. And please be assured that in the future, we at NAA will work to avoid planning events on days of religious observance.
