Why Use the LAA?

1) Gain Knowledge – the Louisiana Auctioneers Association offers great seminars and workshops, attend conventions, listen, talk, share, and learn.

2) Improve Image/Get Professional – If you are a member of an Association, you probably feel it will give you ground to stand on when you make a sales pitch. All Talk, No Action, unless you utilize what is available to you. If you are an active member in that Association, you are involved & passionate about the cause-this will help make you succeed. When you are involved in your Association, you gain a world of knowledge & information from the other members-networking. You gain knowledge from attending the conventions. And the more CORRECT knowledge you get, the more Professional you become. Develop and promote the highest standards of ethical business practices. Contribute to the progress and advancement of lawful actions.

3) Increase Business/Network – There we go again with that word “Network”. Meet others in your profession that are as passionate as you. The more we get to know others in our profession, the more we learn and can pass on to our clients or receive referrals from others in the Association.
