Happy Holidays!


On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Florida Auctioneers Association we wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a Happy New Year as we enter into 2019.


Over the past several months since our Fall Conference your Board has been working on the 2019 Annual Strategic Plan for the Association. We are currently meeting each month to identify how we can make the Association better for all members.


During our conference this year we held a feedback session where we asked participating members to give us suggestions on what the Association could do to bring more value to it’s members. Outlined below is the list that was created from that session. Currently we are prioritizing a list of our Top 10 items and will publish those in the next newsletter along with other key elements of the Strategic Plan.
