DCA Annual Auction
Each year, DCA contractor and associate members gather for a lively and spirited auction raising critical funds for the association. The funds raised support DCA educational programs as well as scholarships awarded to worthy candidates whose field of study will promote and/or enhance the industry. Since 1991, the DCA auction has raised almost $6 million. In 2019, DCA members showed their overwhelming support for the association with their generosity, raising over $900,000 million for grants, scholarships, and educational programming.
The success of the auction relies on the generous donations by DCA members. A few weeks prior to the event, the full-color catalog will be available online. The excitement and energy continue to grow from the start of the online silent auction bidding to the closing gavel of the live auction.
The winning bid of an item also helps the donating company achieve sponsorship levels of Silver, Gold and Platinum for next year’s convention.
