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 13 years, the auction has raised more than $8 million.

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.
