Indiana Auctioneers Gather for Annual Convention

Auctioneers from across the state convened this past weekend for the Indiana Auctioneers Association (IAA) annual conference.  The convention held this year at Embassy Suites, Noblesville, IN, ran November 11-12 with the Title Sponsors of Schrader Real Estate & Auction Company, and the Indiana Auctioneers Association Foundation.

Highlights of this year’s conference included the Welcoming Event with a game of Cornhole that was a fierce competition, the Indiana Champion Auctioneer Competition, Auction Marketing Awards, the Hall of Fame Inductions, the Presidential Luncheon, and the election of the Board of Directors.

Throughout the weekend, Auctioneers were presented with dynamic and engaging educational seminars from industry leading Auctioneers and presenters and gained insight from industry vendors at the annual trade show.

The Indiana Champion Auctioneer Competition crowned the 2022 Indiana Senior Champion Auctioneer, Tanner Lewis – Romney and Mel Bontrager-Middlebury as the Junior Champion.

The highest award conveyed to an Auctioneer in Indiana is an election into the Indiana Auctioneer’s Hall of Fame.  Sue Wickliff – Zionsville was elected to this year’s Hall of Fame class.  Linda Hoffman Jones of Arlington Heights, IL was inducted into the IAA Auxiliary Hall of Fame.

The IAA held their annual election of officers at that annual membership business meeting, electing Marc Huber, Greenfield – President 2023, Isaac Stoller, Bluffton – Vice President, Rainelle Shockome – Columbia City – Treasurer. Newly Elected Director: Loren Beachy, Middlebury, IN
