Speaker Resource Center

Welcome to the National Auction Association Speaker Resource Center. This resource is designed to assist our education speakers with the development of their educational programs.

Conference & Show 2024 Speakers!

Thank you for being a part of this year’s C&S and helping to bring great professional and business content to the auction community! Your assigned Conference & Show Education Committee (CSEC) member or NAA staff will work with you to ensure deliverables are completed and submitted for your in-person session.

Important Deadlines to Remember:

Volunteer Speaker Agreement

Please complete, date, sign, and submit the NEW C&S 2024 Volunteer Speaker Agreement to be eligible for speaker benefits. Please email education@auctioneers.org with any questions.

Session Formats and Templates

Our Conference Education Program (in-person only this year) will consist of 30-minute "innovation" sessions, 45-minute and 60-minute sessions, and 90-minute and 2-hour workshops where the content requires more time for a deeper takeaway. You are welcome to explore the free, on-demand course, "Presenting for Impact," to aid you in developing your session content and presentation materials.

Most of the sessions will be recorded for on-demand viewing later, so an education monitor will help to run microphones to capture audience questions and comments. This provides the best on-demand viewing quality for the recordings.

Use this 2024 Conference & Show PowerPoint template for your education sessions (please note the inclusion of a learning objectives slide).

Register for Conference & Show

If you have not registered for the Conference and Show yet, please register before May 29, 2024.

As a volunteer speaker, you are eligible to receive a "one-day" appreciation discount off your registration fee! After your agreement and session worksheet are completed, you will be given a personal coupon code to enter when you register. Follow the prompts to add the discount to your cart and your payment total will be reduced when you check out. This appreciation discount is non-transferrable and non-stackable.

If you have any questions about registration or the appreciation discount, please email registrations@auctioneers.org.
