Benefit Auction Summit 2022 Hybrid Event

July 26-28, 2022
If you’re a Benefit Auctioneer, the Benefit Auction Summit is one annual event you won’t want to miss! Come join your fellow benefit auction pros to learn the best tips and tools of the trade to create memorable (and profitable) experiences, retain clients, engage the crowd, craft your contracts, market yourself, manage real-life situations, and get set for the future. And with this year's summit co-locating with the annual Conference & Show, you'll get to join with other NAA members for the conference keynote Wednesday and the Annual Business meetings and Elections on Thursday. We look forward to seeing you in San Diego or virtually for this premier learning and networking experience!

Who should invest in attending?
Fundraising auction entrepreneurs seeking higher-level education and looking to advance your benefit business.
