The IAA board of directors would like to invite all IAA members to join us for our pre-convention education session on Thursday, February 1, 2018. This session is featuring Chad Carvey a Benefit Auction Specialist from California. Chad will give us an exciting and fresh perspective about being a benefit auction specialist. This session is held at the convention hotel from 8 am - 4 pm.


Over the past 10 years, Chad has helped raise millions of dollars for local Bay Area schools and non-profits. His interest in auctioneering began many years ago when he did a simple “Pie Auction” for his school and raised much more than expected! As a full-time principal for the past 21 years, not only did he discover that he enjoyed auctioneering, but the guests loved his spirit, and he found that he was often raising double what was expected from previous years’ fundraisers. Chad is able to connect with his audience with a spirit and passion and sense of FUN that is quite unique! Chad is a member of the National Auctioneers Association and the California State Auctioneers Association.
