Concrete Industry Management Program Announces Sixth Annual Auction at World of Concrete

LAS VEGAS - The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program - a business intensive program that awards students with a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management - will host its sixth annual auction at the World of Concrete on Thursday, Jan. 20 in the North Hall Room N262 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The silent auction will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the live auction begins at 1 p.m.

Organizers hope the 2011 Auction will be even bigger than the 2010 Auction, which raised approximately $386,000. The money raised from both the live and silent auctions will benefit the CIM National Steering Committee and support the CIM programs at Middle Tennessee State University, Arizona State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, California State University - Chico, and Texas State University.
