Online PR News – 05-December-2020 – Fort Myers, FL – Scott Robertson, CAI, BAS, a 25+ year veteran auctioneer and principal of Scott Robertson Auctioneers (SRA) was recently chosen by the National Auctioneers Association (NAA) to teach the Benefit Auction Specialist (BAS) course in Las Vegas, Nevada. Founded in 1949, NAA is the world’s largest professional association dedicated to auction professionals and represents the interests of thousands of auction professionals in the U.S., Canada and across the world.

The BAS designation means an auctioneer is trained to plan and conduct successful benefit auctions, and specializes in techniques to establish a successful and profitable benefit auction business. Robertson taught students how to identify current trends in fundraising auctions, aid clients in coordinating a well-planned auction, market the auction, and create a fun and exciting event that generates more revenue for clients and auction businesses.

Less than 2% of the auctioneers in the country have earned the BAS designation. The BAS instructors are considered among the best charity auctioneers in the country.

"The opportunity to learn from a high-caliber instructor like Scott Robertson was my primary motivation for attending this class,” said Rick Shaw, an experienced fundraising auctioneer from San Antonio, Texas. “Thanks to him my knowledge, skills, and understanding regarding fundraising auctions has increased significantly.”

Robertson works as a full-time fundraising auctioneer and consultant at Scott Robertson Auctioneers along with International Champion auctioneer Sara Rose Bytner. Bytnar has also earned the BAS designation. An auctioneer since 1994, he has assisted thousands of not-for-profit organizations raise the funds needed to continue their good work.

“The BAS designation helps professionals elevate their fundraising auction awareness and education, which helps us to be more successful for our clients,” said Robertson. “Most people hire an auctioneer for their stage presence, but they find that the real value lies with the consulting before and after the event. A BAS is specifically trained to aid organizations in coordinating a well-planned, well-marketed auction and create a fun and exciting event that generates more revenue for the cause. We understand best practices, provide fresh ideas about how to entertain and energize audiences, and leave guests looking forward to the next event.”

Scott Robertson Auctioneers is a fundraising auction company headquartered in Southwest Florida.
