We have had an amazing year and, I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to that success.
2017 has been a great year for the Texas Auctioneers Association especially regarding education, marketing/PR and financial strength which I am very confident we will continue. We have been involved in many public activities such Auctioneer Day at the Capital, Scottish Rite Children’s Auction, and the Texas Lonstar Open all of which promotes Texas auctioneers and helps create public awareness of the auction method of marketing.
The present success of the TAA would not have been possible without the leadership of our outgoing President Lance Swigert and this team. Job well done! He and the board deserve a big applause for all their contributions. It will be difficult to match the success of this year.
I sincerely accept this important role as your President and together with the strong support of the new board and you the membership, 2018 will be another great year! We have some big plans for this year that we will be rolling out. We will continue to Promote, Protect and Educate for the Texas Auctioneer and the auction method of marketing.
Before I end, I would like to share a quote from Henry Ford, “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
With this I would like to wish everyone a blessed and prosperous year.
Thank you – Travis Kaddatz, President
Texas Auctioneers Association
