      A.  Louisiana's laws on shill bidding.

      B.  PUBLIC STATEMENTS by LA auctioneers on shill bidding.




2.  CLICK HERE for INDIVIDUAL auctioneer issues (including LALB VIDEOS of those issues).



3.  Obtain guidance for avoiding problematic auction experiences.



4.  LAPA'S Membership Criteria and its Current Membership.



5.  See LALB embarrassments, alphabetically by Board Member or associate.



6.  View LAPA's proposed REFORM of the Louisiana auction industry.
