Course Description 
Gain knowledge, tools and resources for assisting clients in deaccessioning items. When does it make sense to sell, donate or keep?

We'll highlight some online options that clients or organizers can use to consign. Attendees will become well versed in discussing options with clients, and assisting them through the process of sorting through the contents of the home. They may even opt to add this to their list of services or act as the client's advisor.
