What our members say:
 

“I believe it is important to belong to our state association for three reasons. First, there is strength in numbers and the stronger we are the stronger our profession will be. Second, being involved increases our education, which broadens our scope of knowledge and allows us to grow professionally. Finally, the motivation from fellow Auctioneers to grow and achieve brings out the best in us all.”    — Chad Johnson, AU2947 licensed 2002, AB2921 licensed 2010, Chiefland

“As a young auctioneer, I have a lot to learn. I joined the Florida Auctioneers Association for the opportunity to learn from the industry leaders of my state. I have gained what feels like decades worth of knowledge in a few short years thanks to my FAA family.”   — Robert Almovodar, AE480, licensed 2015, Pembroke Pines

“If you want to become a Professional Auctioneer and successful business owner you need to surround yourself with those people who conduct themselves around a strong Code of Ethics, I found such strong leaders within the Florida Auctioneers Association, they are a first-class group of people, friendly, open and always willing to share their knowledge. It's an honor to call them my friends."   — Craig Fleming, AU4441 licensed 2012, Fort Lauderdale

“Becoming a member of the Florida Auctioneer Association, being involved, attending the conventions and creating contacts with people who willing share was the best thing we could have done.  Dudley’s Auction now does over 150 auctions per year, in the auction hall, on site and on line.  None of this would have been possible without the opportunity to learn for the pros.  Now as one of those seasoned professionals I encourage involvement.  As a member and a leader, I assure you, it will be your best investment for your business.”   — Chris Dudley, AU4239 licensed 2011, AB1667 licensed 1997, Inverness
