The CIM Auction at
World of Concrete
Each year, the CIM Auction, the primary fundraiser for CIM programs, is held at World of Concrete in Las Vegas, NV. Over the past 12 years, the auction has raised more than $8 million. The 2020 CIM Auction will be held on Wednesday, February 5 during the 2020 World of Concrete at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Last year, the concrete industry generously donated more than 150 items through both the silent and live auctions, raising $1.2 million in gross revenue for program universities.
All proceeds from the auction will support the CIM programs at Middle Tennessee State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, California State University – Chico, Texas State University and the CIM MBA Program.
CIM Sets New Record At 2019 Auction At World of Concrete
The National Steering Committee (NSC) for 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 – set a new record raising more than $1.2 million in gross revenue at its annual auction, held in conjunction with the World of Concrete on Wednesday, Jan. 23.
“The 2019 World of Concrete Auction was our best ever,” commented Mike Philipps, CIM Auction Committee Chairman. “This year’s auction was a tremendous success, both in terms of the value of donated items and the number of attendees at the Auction. The results are indicative of the high value the concrete industry places on the CIM program.”
The 2019 CIM Auction featured two ready mix trucks, including: a Mack® Granite® Bridge Formula mixer donated by Mack Trucks, Inc. and equipped with a Beck Industrial mixer; and a 2019 Kenworth T880S truck with a Con-Tech Manufacturing bridge-formula rear-discharge BridgeKing mixer.
In addition to the live auction, a silent auction was also held. This year CIM had record proceeds from the silent auction. Auction items included cement, concrete saws, drills, mixers, vibrators, safety equipment, screeds, decorative concrete tools, water meters, pumps, generators, training sessions, reference books, iPads and laptop computers, sports travel packages and golf and vacation travel packages.
“Once again we had incredible support from the World of Concrete show management, Informa and Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers,” said CIM Marketing Committee Chairman Brian Gallagher. “We thank the many companies such as Mack Trucks, Inc., Beck Industrial, Con-Tech Manufacturing, Kenworth and Kenworth of Central Florida, Somero Enterprises, Inc. and the numerous companies that donated items to the Auction to make it a complete success.”
Again this year, NSC partnered with GiveSmart – a user-friendly bidding technology service providing customized auction and event solutions primarily for nonprofit organizations. With GiveSmart, participants were able to register for the auction, sneak preview silent and live auction items, make a donation, and bid on their favorite silent auction items immediately. Once again this year, participants who were not able to attend the live auction were able to bid online during the event.
