• NAA International Auctioneers Conference & Show

    Gayle Stallings brings home wealth of information and networking after taking part in the NAA International Auctioneers Conference & Show in Addison, TX. July 15-18, 2015.

    Spanning nearly an entire week and regularly hosting well more than 1,100 attendees regardless of its annual change in location, Conference and Show is the world’s largest annual gathering of auction professionals. Stallings spent the week attending educational sessions, including: What Does a Charity Look for in a Benefit Auctioneer, Your Elevator Pitch and Lean Canvas, and Your X-Factor in Becoming a Great Auctioneer.
    Stalling also took part in the Women’s Auction Professionals Networking Reception, CAI Celebration Breakfast and the NAA and National Auctioneer Foundation Business Meeting and Election. She brought back all of the experiences and lessons learned in order to enhance FUNauction’s day-to-day offerings for benefit auction clients.

    By attending, I earned 18 hours of continuing education credit from the NAA Education Institute. I’m bringing everything I’ve learned this year back to share with the agencies I serve.
