You should only be hiring Benefit Auctioneer Specialists to handle your event. No matter if you make $1 million, $100,000 or $50,000 a trained auctioneer will make a difference.
BAS is a two-part educational program which trains auction professionals to enhance their services to customers. Coursework focuses on the fundraising components of the benefit auction event, item acquisition, audience development, additional revenue items, contractual agreements, and public relations.
The BAS program is offered through the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) Education Institute and is taught by nationally recognized Auctioneers and professionals who serve the benefit auction industry.
Earning the BAS designation requires not only completion of the coursework, but also testing, submission of specialized reports and various experiential projects.
As a BAS graduate, I am among the less than one percent of Auctioneers throughout North America with specialized training in benefit auctions. To maintain this designation, I must complete 24 additional hours of continuing education courses every three years.
I would be happy to provide you with further information about the BAS, or any of the services my company has to offer.
I look forward to using my expertise to help meet your fundraising needs.
