Members who join after October 1 will receive membership for the remainder of the current year and the entire following year.
The association is governed by an elected yearly president, vice-president, secretary-treasurer and nine board members, who form a revolving three on and three off system with three-year terms. There is also an advisory committee consisting of all past officers and directors. Anyone with an up-to-date membership has voting privileges at the annual business meeting.

The association strives to insure the proper ethical conduct of its members. Educational seminars are given at the state conventions. Association membership increases friendships and business contacts. All members receive the association publication, “The Minnesota Auctioneer”, with news and articles from around the state. The association promotes – through educational seminars, discussions and fellowship at the convention and in “The Minnesota Auctioneer” – the sharing among members of the latest developments, ideas and information concerning the auction profession. Membership allows the right to use the Minnesota State Auctioneers Association logo in advertising. Members also receive an updated list of all member auctioneers.
