National Auctioneers Association
2012 International Auctioneers Conference and Show
and International Auctioneers Competition (IAC) in Spokane Washington
What a spectacular experience to be in Spokane Washington with many of the most accomplished auctioneers in the auction industry. Attendants included the presidents of Ameribid and United Country, Auto Auctioneers from Barett Jackson and Mannheim, Heavy equipment auctioneers and benefit auction specialists from around the globe.
In addition to an international female and male live biding auctioneers competition (IAC), Conference and Show 2012 attendants were able to choose from a list of informative classes taught by knowledgeable specialists. Classes included branding seminars, bid calling workshops, internet marketing, ring man class, real estate, firearms, benefit auctions, and a host of talks about online auctions, auction technology and the direction of the auction industry.
The weather was beautiful, the food was wholesome and the company of the National Auctioneers Association members was welcome. Everyone got along and attempted to improve the auction community through town hall meetings, leadership committees, advisory panels, open discussion and of course the online auctioneers’ forum.
Even though this year’s International Conference and Show is already over, there are several educational opportunities through the National Auctioneers Association/Foundation.
