We’re very excited to bring you this year’s complete convention! Craig Larabee and Joel Christiansen are going to conduct two real estate classes on Friday for those of you who require the CEUs. After that, the convention officially kicks off with some social time before our dinner and fun auction. Don’t forget to bring an item to auction and sign up your youngsters to participate in the Junior Bid Calling Competition!
Paul Behr is returning to present two seminars: “Auctioneering and Bid Calling” and “History of Auctions.” In addition, Randy Ruhter will offer a presentation on “How To Enhance Your Business With The Use of Buyer’s Fees.”
Our Saturday Luncheon is being sponsored in part by Midwest Messenger and KRVN this year! Thank you to those generous sponsors!
Saturday afternoon get ready for our annual Auctioneer and Ringman Championship Contest complete with finals! We can’t wait to see who the lucky winners will be! Also check-in your advertising contest entries to Tom Millie directly after lunch.
Join us Saturday evening for a special social hour sponsored by Proxibid followed by the annual awards banquet! Can’t wait to see who will win the three $1000 scholarships and who is Auctioneer of the Year!
Sunday morning enjoy some uplifting music at the prayer breakfast. Proxibid’s Jacqueline Glassman, Director of Client Services and Sales will start the education segment on Sunday with “Best Practices, Products and Tools for Online Auctions.” That seminar will be followed by Paul C. Behr’s “History of Auctions.” After our two seminars sew it all up with installation of officers and the advertising contest awards at the closing luncheon.
