The Silent Auction is always one of the most popular events at the ESA Annual Meeting. Featuring donations from our supporters and vendors, this is a great chance to do some early holiday shopping for many insect-themed items and support the future of your profession at the same time. Bid early, bid often from Sunday through Wednesday at 1pm.
Let’s face it. Nothing says “I support entomology” quite like cash. We are working hard to fulfill the needs of educators and need your support to make that happen. Please join us and financially support the Entomological Foundation as part of your annual ESA renewal, year-end philanthropy, or just because. Donate year-round at www.entfdn.org or directly through the mobile app for the meeting.
This is a new era for the Entomological Foundation. We need your input, support, and volunteerism to help direct our efforts in the future. There are committee openings now and you can sign on to help build our future. Stop by the ESA Booth to learn how you can become more involved. Volunteers are needed to help
