The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program – a business intensive program that awards students with a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management – is pleased to announce the following bucket list items available for their annual auction at the World of Concrete. The auction is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 18 in the North Hall Room N262 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The silent auction is held from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. PST and the live auction begins at 1 p.m. PST.

“We have some tremendous sports and travel packages in the CIM auction this year,” said Mike Philipps, chairman of the CIM Auction Committee, “These items offer the opportunity for some once-in-a-lifetime travel while supporting a great cause at the same time.”
