There is a major voice auction with about 75 lots held each year in the spring, usually mid April. The intent of the auction is to have better quality material available for collectors to bin on and buy for their respective collections. Only members can submit items for the major auction.
The next auction is April 17, 2018. A listing of the lots will be available nearer the auction date.
Silent auctions are generally held prior to each meeting (close about 7:45 pm). There are some exceptions such as the meeting when the major auction is scheduled and the special meetings. See the meeting schedule for details.
This is an opportunity for members to submit items at the start of the meeting that are no longer required in their collection. Only members can submit items for the silent auction.
