Hall of Fame

Georgia Auctioneers Association is proud to introduce our list of GAA Members and Georgia Auctioneers who have earned the honor of being inducted into The Georgia Auctioneers Hall of Fame. Many of those listed were Past Presidents and members who dedicated time and energy to the auction industry in our state. An asterisk next to a member name indicates the Hall of Fame Members who have passed.  Contact us if you have a Hall of Fame Member and our Committee can provide information about the nomination process.  Any new Hall of Fame members voted and agreed upon by our Hall of Fame Committee are introduced at our Summer Conference which is generally in August.
