►Cancun was the SUMMIT!August 30, 2017 - Author: Jenelle Taylor, CAI BAS
It’s that time of year again, when the biggest names in Benefit Auctions nationwide gather to share and learn.
Oh, yeah, that happens, too, but many of us go year after year to see our much loved peers and friends! You see, the benefit auctioneers are a very tight group.
In fact, I’m part of a connected international (and private) group of more than 1000 individuals who do fundraising auctions.
That means that at any time, I can reach out to professionals across the country – to check out a consignment provider, bounce off ideas, or mentor someone. I can even get feedback on your committee’s brilliant (or kooky!) new idea 🙂
This year, to shake things up a bit we gathered in Cancun, Mexico, and a good time was had by all. My presentation this year continues my streak of being featured as a presenter for our industry every other year since 2010. As you can imagine, we come away with new techniques to bring back home to you, our nonprofit partners!
