Who We Are
The North Carolina Auctioneers Law, Chapter 85B of the General Statutes, became effective
July 1, 1973. The Law stipulates that there shall be a five-member Commission, known as the
Auctioneer Licensing Board, having the powers and responsibilities set out in this Chapter.
Members are appointed by the Governor. By law, three members are from nominations submitted
by the Auctioneers Association of North Carolina; at least three members must be licensed
auctioneers; one member is appointed to represent the public at large, and can't be licensed.
The Auctioneer Licensing Board operates in accordance with the Executive Budget Act,
within an approved budget, with operational activities of the Board and its staff supported
totally by license fees collected from those in the auction profession.
