August 26, 2016 Benefit Auction Summit 2016
It is that time of year again, time for professional fundraising auctioneers to gather together, share ideas and learn from the best in their business across the nation.
The National Auctioneers Association is hosting the 5th Annual Benefit Auction Summit in San Diego, California beginning this Sunday. Many of the 135 auction professionals who will be in attendance hold the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist designation (BAS) as Jean and I do.
I am honored to be on the BAS committee this year. We have planned an amazing event. I will be hosting one panel and serving on two others. Then next year I look forward to serving as co-chair for the 2017 Summit.
Attending this Summit allows me to get lots of new, fresh ideas to bring back to our fundraising clients. I also get the opportunity to share with other benefit auctioneers the things that I am doing to help nonprofits raise money for their missions at their events.
Before the education begins however, I’m happy to have some time to relax and enjoy visiting with friends. I am in Newport Beach, California today with my “spa partner” Hannes Combest, CEO of the NAA. We always look for opportunities to take some time to smell the roses when traveling to these functions.
I cannot wait to see everyone at the Summit and to enjoy sharing the tools and tricks to help our nonprofit clients raise the most money possible at their fundraising events.
Make every minute a revenue generating minute!
