IAOM Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony
IAOM will honor and pay tribute to its award recipients at the Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony on the final evening of the conference, April 9.
It is sure to be a memorable evening. This year’s celebration will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Portland, Oregon.
The evening will start at 6 pm, with a reception, where IMEF Silent Auction bidding will continue. The virtual bidding software will allow the Silent Auction to stay open throughout the banquet.
The reception will be followed by what promises to be a delicious dinner, prepared by the hotel’s talented chefs. The evening will feature a program that includes the passing of the gavel, presentation of IAOM awards and a live auction to raise funds for the International Milling Education Foundation.
IAOM’s Annual Banquet & Awards Ceremony is always a highlight of the Annual Conference & Expo. Be sure to attend to see who will receive this year’s industry awards.
Let the Bidding Begin
Auctions to support the International Milling Education Foundation (IMEF) will be held during the annual IAOM Conference & Expo. Auction activities have become a favorite tradition at the event!
Past items have included iPads, hunting and fishing trips, electronics, golf range finders, smokers, sieves, tickets to college and professional sporting events, TVs, coffee brewers, getaway trips to exotic locations, handmade quilts, and much, much more!
Live Auction and Heads or Tails
The Live Auction will take place during the annual banquet and awards ceremony dinner at the 124th Annual IAOM Conference & Expo in Portland, Oregon, on the night of April 9. An auctioneer will be on hand to keep the bidding interesting and make sure everyone has a shot at the fabulous items on the sale block.
This is your chance to bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences for you and your friends. We should warn you now, the live auctions are both fun and exciting. Possible side effects may include satisfaction, a sense of purpose, exhilaration, elevated heart rate, laughter, giddiness, sore cheeks from smiling, and a sore shoulder from raising your numbered paddle and waving it around frantically trying to outbid that guy over there. Stretching beforehand is a good idea.
How good are you at guessing Heads or Tails? If you win the Heads or Tails game at the banquet, you will win your choice of any of the Live Auction items prior to the first bid. In order to participate in the Heads or Tails game at the banquet, you will need to purchase a set of beads that will identify you as a PLAYER. The purchase price for one strand of beads is $100 – and only 100 beads will be sold. If all beads aren’t sold prior to the beginning of the game, it’s possible the remaining beads will be sold to a PLAYER who wants a second chance at winning.
With the Silent Auction taking place via mobile app, it’s not even necessary for you to be present to participate in the Silent Auction bidding, which opens on Wednesday, April 8 – auction previews will be published prior to the conference – and ends during the banquet. Our totally Silent Auction caters to an even stealthier crowd. Our extensive auction catalog is a veritable treasure trove of coveted objects, services, and experiences—with 100% of proceeds benefiting IMEF.
With every dollar you spend helping IMEF, we encourage you to let loose your competitive spirit and generous nature to top that last bid!
Your winning bid (and contribution) ensures that IMEF will be able to continue to inspire leadership and achievement within the milling community!
Proceeds from the Auctions support the learning, knowledge resources and vibrant community provided by the International Milling Education Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) U.S. tax-deductible organization.
Help raise money to support future generations of milling professionals!
