Auction Academy has released its schedule for this year’s 2018 Seminar Series program.
Auction Academy’s upcoming seminars will kick off with a a workplace culture session that will be held in Franklin, Tenn., March 26 and March 27.
“Different from our two-year program, the Seminar Series offers one-day intensive sessions, with in-depth focus on a single specific topic or functional area. These sessions have become increasingly popular because we target the most important aspects of the auction industry with usable hands on information and applications,” Auction Academy president Penny Wanna said in a news release.
“Holding to this strategy, we chose as the first topic area for 2018 the various aspects of Workplace Culture, specifically to include harassment of any type: physical, sexual, verbal or visual. Not only is this a timely subject, given what we see in the worlds of media, entertainment and government, but it is a critical subject with profound implications for the workplace in our industry,” Wanna said.
Following the workplace culture session, a session on condition report writing will be held in Kansas City, Mo., May 21, 22 and 23.
Additionally, Auction Academy’s third-quarter session that will address the topic of fleet/lease compliance will be held in conjunction with the IARA Summer Roundtable on Aug. 20 and 21 in Marco Island, Fla.
Lastly, a fourth seminar series session on Oct. 29 and 30, also in Franklin, Tenn., will cover dealer sales.
Auction Academy said space for each of the series sessions is limited, and potential participants should reserve their space early.
