The Wisconsin Auctioneers Association (WAA) is a non-profit trade association whose mission is to grow the auction marketing industry and promote auctioneering in Wisconsin. This organization is also dedicated to creating a positive image for auctioneering in Wisconsin. The WAA also offers a variety of educational and community outreach opportunities.
Auctioneers must follow certain guidelines to ensure that their events are fair and legally sound. These guidelines include determining whether an auction is personal or not, and determining if it is a political or charitable auction. Personal auctions are defined as those whose total appraised value is less than $500.
