Traveling the nation, I enjoy speaking with other auctioneers and brokers. This past weekend, I had the great opportunity to speak to the Auctioneers Association of Iowa. 
After a couple hours on an American Airline jet, we landed in Iowa. It wasn’t first class, but the emergency seats were most comfortable. The incoming president of the Iowa Association, David Whitaker was waiting for Elizabeth and me in the luggage pickup.

Three days of education, Ringman championship and State bid calling championship ensued.
The hospitality offered r and kindness of the Iowa members will be my lasting memory. No matter, where I go, I am able to recognize that auctioneers and brokers across this nation are, for the most part, good people. 
As an auctioneer, state associations like this and the National Auctioneers Association are imperative in business development. At this meeting, topics ranged from marketing, goal planning, to bid calling. A trade show was set up in the center of the hotel for auctioneers to speak with auction business related vendors. Like anything in life, growth takes place by fertilizing your soil and pruning the non-producing vines. I congratulate Iowa for putting on an informative and professional convention.
