Epsilon Sigma Phi at Extension Program Conference

Extension's Program Conference will be held October 7-9 at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. All Epsilon Sigma Phi (ESP) members are invited to join us for the following activities:




  • ESP silent auction noon - 7 p.m., October 7


  • ESP dollar auction 4:30-6 p.m., October 8, during the Lightning Talks


  • ESP member meeting 6:15-7:30 p.m., October 8

Show your support for ESP by donating an item to the ESP silent and dollar auctions that reflects your passion. Do you like to paint? Knit? Golf? Go to your lake cabin? Think about donating a basket of items that coordinates with what you love to do or a 'masterpiece' you've created. Donate an item to the auctions as an individual or with a group. Approximately six items will be selected for the dollar auction, with the remaining items being offered at the silent auction. All proceeds go to the Minnesota Extension Workers Scholarship (MEWS) Fund.  

To donate an item for the silent and dollar auctions, please send the following information to Ellie McCann, mccan023@umn.edu via email by Wednesday, September 25: name of donor; address of donor; email of donor; item description (20 words or less); estimated fair market dollar value of item.


Other ways to be involved at conference:




  • Take bids from colleagues who are unable to attend (such as retirees who may only be in attendance one of the two days).


  • Volunteer to help with setting up the silent auction on Monday afternoon.


  • Make a cash donation to MEWS if you are unable to attend either or both of the auctions.
