Arrangements For Donations

Auction Items may be brought to the Resource Room/Marketplace when you arrive at the Summit. You will need to check your item in with the Resource Room/Marketplace Coordinator.

If you are not attending the Summit, you may still donate an item for the auction. Please contact the NSN office for more information on how to donate your item(s).

Knowing in advance the item(s) you will be donating will help us know how many tables to rent from the hotel.
