With our annual convention rapidly approaching, I wanted to remind everyone what is offered for "first timers". If you have any questions, contact the TAA office.
The TAA has several activities just for our First Timers. The First Timer’s Breakfast is a fun event in which you can connect with our Hall of Fame members, Past Presidents, and our current Board of Directors. Not only will you have an amazing breakfast, you will also have two opportunities to win a free registration to the next year’s convention. The Hall of Fame will conduct a drawing among all of the First Timers at the breakfast for a free 2021 convention registration. Also, details will be given regarding the First Timer’s Scavenger Hunt. This is a fun way to get involved and meet many different members. After you complete the scavenger hunt, a drawing will be held for another registration to the 2021 convention. You definitely don’t want to miss the breakfast!
I highly recommend participating in the mentorship program. We will pair you with a Hall of Famer, Past President, past champion, or auction industry leader to be your personal contact during this year’s convention. They are there for you, whether it’s just helping you navigate your way around the convention, giving you more information about competing in the contests, or to discuss the auction industry with you. With the current state of our nation, the auction industry is changing. This will be a great way to network with other auctioneers and discuss new and creative ideas.
I look forward to seeing you at the 2020 TAA convention in San Marcos!
