COPA Migration 2023 - Silent & Live Auction UPDATE

Hello COPAns!

COPA Migration 2023 is around the corner and the auctions are ready to go! We are excited to present some fun and unique items in both the silent and live auctions this year. The Migration Planning committee wants to send a big thank you to all of the vendors and partners who participated in this year’s auctions to support the COPA Safety & Education Foundation. The continued support from many of these vendors is greatly appreciated!

The silent auction website can be found by clicking the link below. If you’ve registered for a previous Migration silent auction, the same login credentials as previous years should still work. If you forget your password, there is a “Forgot Password” button that will send you a link to reset it. If you have not registered before, please click the “Register” button on the menu bar and set up your account (this website is not linked in any way to the COPA site - a separate account and login is required).

The silent auction is open to EVERYONE. You do not need to be registered for Migration to bid on silent auction items.
