The Society's GOLDEN GAVEL Competition and Awards was created by Past President, Anthony Toop FSAA (Life) in 1993 and has been passionately supported by the Auctioneering professions since inception. The concept evolved as a means to give profile to our local Auctioneers and Appraisers and it has become the benchmark for the Australasian Competition and other Auction Competitions within the Real Estate, General and Livestock professions within Australia and New Zealand.
The GOLDEN GAVEL has developed and evolved to recognize excellence for all Auctioneers and Appraisers by encouraging especially young performers to enter the Rising Star category as a follow on to the Society's Nationally Accredited 2 Day Real Estate Auction Academy.
The GOLDEN GAVEL is the longest running Auctioneering Competition in the Southern Hemisphere and has unquestionably raised the standards of Auctioneering in South Australia and has been the spring board that has fast-tracked the careers of many South Australian auctioneers!
