Participate in the 4.ninerK and get points for your state. Get your team together now so you can compete all weekend long!
WHO'S GOT TALENT?
Region 5 that's who. Join the UNC Charlotte students for a night of poetry by The Asia Project w/ Mayhem Poets, sponsored by Campus Activities Board. Following that sing your lungs out in Karaoke Night sponsored by Niners on the Weekend.
Nothing says "Conference" like a good old fashion University Hostel! We'll about linens, showers, lockers, food, board and video games, basketball, late night snacks, and more!

The Silent Auction featuring school jerseys, autographed sports memorabilia, gift baskets, jackets, movie posters and other great items provided by members will run throughout the Region 5 conference. You can help by donating an item or two or you can bid on items. Here's how:
Bid early, and bid often! During the conference, items will be available for bid during the above hours. Stop by frequently to see if your prize is being claimed by someone else—a little friendly competition never hurt!
Your donations to the auction are greatly appreciated. Donate items now that you think your colleagues would love to take home as a prize. Items and item sets donated to the auctions and preregistered by 5 pm October 17th will earn special premium placement. The ACUI Region 5 Silent Auction registration is now open.
Special Items will be selected from the submissions to be part of the Region 5 Live Auction. This is a rare occasion where our very own licensed auctioneer J. Scott Derrick will lead the Region in a faced paced and exciting Live Auction.
Getting your items to the conference is easy
