What CAS can do for you

Earning any designation demonstrates your commitment to continuing education both to the public and members of the industry. It also enables members to network with like-minded individuals in the classroom and through additional networking events, but here are some specific benefits of a CAS designation.

Not only does the CAS designation help contract auction professionals up their game, but it makes them more attractive as potential employees. This class sheds light on the concept of seeing your contract position as a business to be managed rather than just a job position. It goes beyond the auction event itself and covers the importance of running a business and marketing your auctions. The class exposes students to niches and industries that may not have been previously considered to help grow their business.

To maintain your designation

  • Be a member of the NAA
  • Pay the annual designation dues of $35 by October 31
  • Complete 24 hours of continuing education (CE) every three years
