The 2021 Conference for the Arkansas Auctioneers Association is in the books. Thank you to everyone who attended the convention. We had a great lineup of speakers and vendors. We were faced with several challenges, but due to the efforts of the board and membership who volunteered their help, this year's event was a success. I want to give a huge shout out to our Executive Director of the Association, Cali Crissup. Cali has the amazing ability to orchestrate the chaos of scheduling speakers, vendors, communicating with the hotel and keeping the board informed with such precision and efficiency, it is sometimes mind blowing.

Thank you to our speakers who  included Shawn Terrel, Brian Rigby, Nathaniel Frederick, Barrett Bray, and our own Kirk Witcher.  Each one presented current topics that affect the daily operations of the auction profession. Mr. Paul Colvin presented an outstanding Real Estate Class.

It has been an honor to serve as Board President for 2021. We have a fantastic organization with members who are passionate about the auction profession.

We have already scheduled a couple of dynamic speakers for the 2022 Conference, which as of now, will be back to our normal time frame of February.  Thank you again and make your plans to be with us for the 2022 Convention.
