NAA Speakers Bureau
The NAA Speakers Bureau program hosts a select group of NAA-approved speakers, offering state auctioneer associations the opportunity to choose a subject expert for their annual meeting or conference.

NOTE: The NAA Board of Directors recently voted to change the speaker request/confirmation process. The biggest change is that we will offer up to $600 towards the cost of travel for the speaker! A real benefit as the cost of travel continues to increase. To qualify for travel reimbursement, all requests for a speaker and the speaker's availability must go through NAA staff rather than directly between a speaker and a state association.
