Industry Support Allows Successful Program Funding
The NSC, in collaboration with local patron groups at all four universities, provides both funding and oversight for the CIM program. To date, more than $5 million has been distributed to the universities to assist in the establishment and development of the program. On the national level, a major source of funding for the program is the annual CIM Auction held at the World of Concrete. Over the past 12 years, the auction has raised more than $6 million.
The 2018 CIM Auction will be held on Wednesday, January 24 during the 2018 World of Concrete in the North Hall Meeting Rooms of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The silent auction will be held from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. in room N263 and the live auction begins at 1 p.m. in room N262. Last year, the concrete industry generously donated over 150 items through both the silent and live auctions, raising more than $875,000 in gross revenue for the program universities. Auction items varied from equipment and supplies, used by both producers and contractors in the concrete industry, to exciting vacation and sports packages, personal computers and TVs. Among the items donated were a concrete mixer truck, cement, admixtures, electronics, software, forms, tools, pumps, power screeds, generators, and all‐inclusive packages to bucket-list experiences such as the Kentucky Derby, Indianapolis 500, and The Masters (for a full list of 2017 donations, click here).
