BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Dec. 10, 2013 - PRLog -- Mike Grigg and Connie Waddell of Bakersfield, California based Elite Auctions and Fundraising Services ( attend Benefit Auction Specialist (BAS) course in Las Vegas.

“The National Auctioneers Association created the Benefit Auction Specialist (BAS) professional designation to provide Auctioneers with training in planning and conducting successful benefit auctions, as well as techniques to establish a successful and profitable benefit auction business. BAS students are taught how to market themselves to prospective clients, aid clients in coordinating a well-planned auction, market the auction and create a fun and exciting event that generates more revenue for clients and auction businesses.”  (National Auctioneers Association)

Furthering their knowledge of benefit auctions directly benefits Elite Auctions’ clients, assisting them to bring in more qualified attendees, more money and more recognition for each cause.  By surrounding themselves by other qualified benefit auctioneers, Mike and Connie have developed their network of the best fundraising auctioneers in the country.  The concepts and ideas taught at BAS are cutting edge and specific to fundraising auction events which differentiate a professional BAS fundraising auctioneer versus a volunteer or auctioneer with other specialties donating their time.  Elite Auctions and Fundraising Services increased nonprofit organization’s and school’s results by 39% when following volunteer auctioneers from the previous year’s event in 2013.

To attain the BAS designation, candidates must complete 21 hours of classroom training. Upon completion of classroom activities, candidates must submit a detailed, written auction summary report and proof of at least six benefit auctions. Auctioneers must complete 24 hours of continuing education every three years and pay an annual designation fee to main their BAS designation.   Only about 1 in every 10 auctioneers have the BAS designation (this number is approximate and fluctuates each year based on renewals and continuing education requirements).
