Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) Program Auction will be held on Wednesday, January 22, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas in conjunction with the World of Concrete Show. Over $1 million in items have been donated and all proceeds from this auction go to support education through the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) 4-year degree program. A current list of auction items can be found here and and you can find out more about the CIM program at The auction will be held in two parts – a silent auction being held in room N263 (2nd floor of the North Hall) from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and a live auction being held directly across the hall in room N262 from 1 - 2 p.m.

For those who will be at World of Concrete, you can register for either or both auctions by completing a bid book registration. These registrations will be available all day Tuesday at either the Ritchie Bros. booth (Central Hall booth #C4113) or the CIM booth (North Hall Lobby booth #NL15). On Wednesday, you can register outside of the silent auction room beginning at 10:30 a.m. Once you receive your bid book, you will use the number on the book to bid in both the silent and live auctions.

For those who wish to bid on auction items online (available for live auction items only), you must call Ritchie Bros. Customer Service line before auction day at 1-800-211-3983 and your information will be taken over the phone (this is to bypass the normally-required advance deposit requirements for regular Ritchie Bros auctions). Once you call and get registered with Ritchie Bros., you will then receive an e-mail on auction day with the link to the online auction and special bidding instructions.

Finally, if you will not be at World of Concrete and will not be able to participate in the live auction online but still wish to participate and bid on items, you can complete one or both of the "Absentee Bidder Forms" found here to submit an opening bid for items of your choice in either auction. If your bid is the highest at the conclusion of the bidding time, then you will be the winner of that item and will be contacted to arrange for payment and delivery of your item as appropriate.

We look forward to a very successful auction, and hope that you can be a part of it!  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact NRMCA’s Nicole Maher at
