Use the letter at different businesses to solicit silent auction items for the conference.  

Michigan's premier Environmental and Outdoor Education conference will be held in Alpena in Fall 2023

For this to work, we need MAEOE members to go out and seek donations for items that can be donated for our auction.  We need you to talk to people, stores, corporations, etc. and see if you can get people to donate to our auction.  We would love all of the items to have a value of $25.00 or more.  

So, we are looking to the membership to go talk to some of the merchants we love and see if they will donate.  Even if it’s a small amount, maybe you can pair it with others.  For example, some one from Grand Rapids could hit multiple microbreweries for 5 $20.00 gift certificates and call it a “Taste of Grand Rapids”.  


Please use the Silent Auction Items Form to submit your silent auction items.  You MUST receive a confirmation email before bringing any items to the conference. Items without a confirmation email will not be accepted.


Each MAEOE conference offers participants an area where they can network with organizations, universities, agencies and others who exhibit materials and programs. The exhibit fee is $50. A typical exhibit includes a 10 foot booth space with an eight foot table. Once your form is submitted, you will be contacted regarding method of payment.

Join the many sponsors that support the work of the MAEOE network. Review the sponsorship levels and benefits below. You will be contacted about your preferred method of payment once the form is received and reviewed. If you have any questions please email us at
