Join fellow Florida Auctioneers Association members for the annual Legislative Day or "Day on the Hill" on Wednesday, January 29th.
The event will take place at the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee, 400 S Monroe St, Tallahassee, FL 32399.
We will be visiting and meeting our lawmakers to raise awareness and voice concerns pertaining to the auction industry in Florida including our thoughts on proposed deregulation of the auction industry.

The Teams will have a list of Senators/Representatives offices to visit and with proper planning, we will cover the entire list by the end of day.
