Please mark your calendars and make your plans to attend the 2011 Nebraska Auctioneers Association Convention June 3-5 at the Quality Inn/Sandhills Convention Center in North Platte, Nebraska.
Our keynote speaker is Kristine Fladeboe-Duininck of Fladeboe Auctions in Spicer, MN. Kristine will be addressing How to Keep the Auction Profession Professional. We’re also planning a program on trinkets and antiques — what’s seeling and wha’t not.
Here’s some background on Kristine:
Kristine Fladeboe‐Duininck (Auctioneer and Partner) became a professional Auctioneer in 1995. Her love for the business started nearly twenty years earlier as she listened to her father sell everything from cattle to collectibles to real estate. After Kristine graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a degree in business and communications, she quickly became part of the family business. In July 2010, Kristine was named the International Auctioneer Champion — the top female Auctioneer in the United States – by the National Auctioneers Association (NAA). She will serve as an ambassador throughout the coming year for the Association and its members, promoting the profession of auctioneering and the “auction method of marketing.” She was also honored as the 2006 Champion Auctioneer by the Minnesota State Auctioneers Association. She is a certified Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) through the NAA — one of less than 150 people nationwide to hold this distinction. Kristine resides in Spicer, Minnesota with her husband Jamie and two children, Elsie and Harris. When Kristine has home and work “in order” you might find her out on a long run collecting her thoughts for the next auction or the next adventure with her #1 passion—her children!
Kristine was recently featured in American Profile magazine.
