The Society's Messenger Community News~Mortgage Choice 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 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 Messenger Community News~Mortgage Choice GOLDEN GAVEL has developed and evolved to recognize excellence for all Auctioneers and by encouraging especially young performers to enter the Rising Star category as a follow on to the Society's Nationally Accredited 3 day Real Estate Auction Academy where participants are encouraged to develop their own unique style and then practice and critique themselves with the ultimate goal of aspiring to win The Messenger Community News~Mortgage Choice GOLDEN GAVEL.
