The above options are specifically intended for consumers; however, consumers can gain MUCH insight into the LALB by visiting Option # 1 under "Auctioneers" below.  Especially of interest to consumers may be the link for discussions of placing a LAPA Link on the LALB's website.  It's amazing the steadfast resolve of the LALB to keep you the consumer from obtaining access to the information within this website!
