Benefit Auction Specialist (BAS)

The BAS designation is a mark of excellence in the world of benefit auctions. Awarded by the NAA Education Institute, it equips auctioneers with the planning techniques needed for successful benefit auctions. BAS auctioneers are trained in marketing skills and business strategy development to build clientele and maximize profits. To earn the BAS designation, auctioneer-scholars must complete 21 classroom hours, submit a detailed written auction summary report, demonstrate experience with at least six benefit auctions, and complete 24 hours of continuing education every three years. Topics covered include fundraising strategies, item acquisition, audience development, contractual agreements, and public relations. It’s worth noting that less than 1% of auctioneers and benefit auction professionals in North America hold the BAS designation.

Why Choose Auctions for Fundraising?

Auctions are a true representation of the market economy, where items are sold to the highest bidder. Research shows that a wide range of non-profit organizations, including schools, museums, hospitals, churches, service groups, and civic organizations, utilize auctions as their primary source of fundraising.
