Another Successful Silent Auction at Davis

The Silent Auction held at the IOS Conference in Davis, CA was another great success. The total amount raised surpassed USD 2,600 and an additional USD 1,000 was received as a private donation to the fund. The proceeds from the auction held at The Morton Conference in 2015 were used to fund five scholarships to the Davis Conference. Thanks to the money raised from this auction, we will be able to offer more scholarships to Taiwan in 2021. We would like to thank everyone who bid and especially the following people for donating items to be auctioned:
