The first Center for the Public Trust (CPT) Silent Auction held during NASBA’s Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, was a huge success. Held on October 25, 2010, with 112 items donated, the CPT made just over $44,000. Kudos to the Friends of the CPT, who spent countless volunteer hours coordinating, coaxing, and covering gift baskets, to the donors, who were unbelievably generous with their amazing gifts, the NASBA staff who went the extra mile, and to those relentless bidders.
“What a wonderful evening we all had,” stated NASBA President and CEO David Costello. “There was a tremendous energy and excitement in the air. We knew this would be a successful event, but are just thrilled at the amount we have raised.”
The proceeds of the auction will support the CPT’s initiatives such as: the Student CPT Chapters which are based on college campuses and focus on educating and engaging future business leaders on ethics, accountability and integrity; the Ethics in Action Video Competition which provides a creative means for college students to develop a real awareness of ethical issues and helps to build a moral and ethical foundation for all future endeavors; the Being a Difference Award Program which is a national recognition program that acknowledges individuals and organizations who follow high standards of social responsibility for performance and leadership; and conferences and seminars which promote ethics, trust, leadership, accountability and integrity.
