2023 Annual Conference Silent Auction
We will continue to collect bids for the 2023 Silent Auction to benefit the Diane Lupke Scholarship fund through Monday, September 18 at 4:30pm CST when bidding will close. If you are on-site and at the Annual Conference in Dallas, TX, we'll be announcing winners during the ice cream social in the exhibit hall.
Diane Lupke, CEcD FM created the scholarship in 2001 spurred by her own passion for creating change and empowering distressed communities. It is her purpose, and that of the scholarship, to assist economic developers working in these areas to further their education and, in turn, be agents of change in their communities. Every year, this program awards four economic development professionals in distressed areas with scholarships to continue their industry education through IEDC’s training courses. Proceeds fromthe auction benefit The Diane Lupke Scholarship Fund.
