CIM Auction Returns

Once again, World of Concrete attendees will have a chance to get bargains on construction products and services while helping future producers. The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) Auction takes place at noon, Thursday, Jan. 25, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Last year, more than 200 attendees and exhibitors participated in the fast-paced action, including some on the Internet. The event raised more than $250,000 for the building fund for the CIM program at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU).

McNeilus and International Truck again have donated a mixer truck. This year's event for the CIM Steering Committee will benefit the CIM programs at MTSU, Arizona State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and California State University at Chico.
