2017 FAA Annual Winter Conference
We are thrilled to have NAA CEO Hannes Combest, AMM instructor John Schultz, and 2016 IAC Champion Beth Rose be among the speakers for this year's conference. We will be hosting a legislative panel to talk about the recent deregulation bill and what your association is doing to protect the license law with special guest, Senator Aaron Bean. We will also have a session to introduce FAA's new website designed and hosted by Bid Wrangler.
The Welcome Party will be held on Sunday evening @ 6:00 pm at a local restaurant-Fionn MacCool’s Irish Pub. Dinner will be served and great time will be enjoyed by all. The restaurant is a 5-minute walk, (.3 mile), from the hotel. Arrangements have been made to transport those who may prefer to travel by vehicle.
The Florida Auctioneers Association will hold the Annual Membership Meeting on Monday, Nov. 13, 2017, beginning at 4:00 pm.
The Conference will include the Presentation of the Lewis C. Dell Award, the Marketing Competition, our Fun Auction and Florida Auctioneer Bid Calling Championship. This year we will allow past FAA Bid Calling Champions who won in 2011 or prior to compete. Marketing and Bid Calling Contest rules and applications, Board Member applications and Lewis C. Dell Award nomination forms are available on the website under ABOUT-FAA Forms, in the Fall Newsletter or by contacting the FAA office. Forms, except for Lewis C. Dell Award, will also be available on site.
