Dear Clients and potential Clients,
We are extremely qualified to help you raise funds for your organization through the auction method of marketing, having completed coursework to earn the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) designation.
BAS is a two-part educational program which trains auction professionals to enhance their services to clients. 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, we are among the less than one percent of Auctioneers throughout North America with specialized training in benefit auctions. To maintain this designation, each auctioneer and fundraising consultant holding a BAS designation must complete 24 additional hours of continuing education courses every three years.
We are delighted to share this good news with you and would be happy to provide you with further information about the BAS, or any of the services our company has to offer you and your organization.
We look forward to using our expertise to help meet your fundraising needs and goals.
The Elite Auctions & Fundraising Services Team
