If you are an auctioneer, or otherwise involved in the auction business, I strongly suggest you join the National Auctioneers Association (NAA).
The NAA was founded in 1949 and services nearly 5,000 auctioneer members. The mission of the NAA is to promote the auction method of marketing and enhance the professionalism of its members through education and technology.
Networking via the annual Conference & Show, NAA Forum and through classes and seminars allows members to learn from each other. This type of education is difficult to acquire in any other way. Too, the actual classes and seminars held year-round offer exceptional educational opportunities found nowhere else.
If you are serious about the auction business, there is no better way to learn more about your profession and improve yourself, and your client’s and customer’s auction experience.
