ISPA FOUNDATION reparations for the ISPA Conference & Expo are well under way , which means it ’ s time to start thinking about donating to the ISPA
Foundation Live & Silent Auctions . As managers and leaders , we have a responsibility to create a culture of selflessness and compassion in order to operate efficiently . Participating in charitable giving is a great way to lead by example and ignite the same behavior among your employees .
Over the past 15 years I ’ ve enjoyed both donating and participating in the ISPA Foundation Live & Silent Auctions , which have led to some incredible experiences , including a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Dubai . Fostering charitable initiatives continues to enhance my life and my business — and can do the same for yours ! Whether you ’ re bidding for yourself or treating a loved one , the satisfaction of supporting a worthy cause is always a win .
By donating an item or experience to the Live and Silent Auctions , you ’ re creating a unique marketing buzz for your business both before and during ISPA Conference . Most importantly , through charitable giving , you ’ re providing support to the spa industry through the important work of the ISPA Foundation , including the development of the new consumer and spa industry research . Thank you for all of your continued support throughout the years ! I encourage everyone to help us reach our goal of US $ 125,000 and donate to this year ’ s 2017 ISPA Foundation Live & Silent Auctions .
