Georgia Auctioneers Association is pleased to continue our partnership in education program with Georgia Association of Realtors.  This year we will host two very qualified presenters who will deliver education to our group of Georgia Auctioneers. The continuing education is included with full registration to our 2015 Winter Conference, but anyone can pay to attend only the GAR courses on Sunday, January 19, 2015 at Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa.

PRINCIPLED NEGOTIATIONS  is the name of the course Tom Gillet will teach at our 2015 Winter Conference.  Auctioneers, realtors and participants will gain valuable guidance and gain qualities of a good negotiator through techniques, tactics, and strategies.
