RMEB CEO David Whitley attends NAA long range planning meeting in Spokane, WA.

Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. lead auctioneer and CEO David P. Whitley CAI CES recently attended a special long range planning meeting for the National Auctioneers Association held in Spokane, Washington June 3-5, 2008. Incoming NAA president Randy Wells chose twenty auctioneers from across the United States to work with him to develop a long-term plan for the continued success of the NAA. He employed a professional facilitator to help the group arrive at twenty long-term goals the association should strive to attain in the coming years.

Whitley said, “I was honored to be asked to be a member of this group. The auction business has been affected by many changes the last few years.” The twenty members of the group represented some of the world’s largest, most successful auction companies. “I may have been the member from the smallest auction company. I was pretty impressed to be sitting in a room with a vice-president from Ritchie Brothers. Even though there were many powerful auctioneers there, I really felt like my opinion mattered,” Whitley added. He stated, “We spent three long days talking about ways the NAA can better serve its members. I believe that any organization that serves its members well will increase its membership in the long run.”

Rocky Mountain Estate Brokers Inc. and its auctioneers are members of the National Auctioneers Association, The Colorado Auctioneers Association and the Wyoming Auctioneers Association. Three of RMEB’s auctioneers hold the prestigious Certified Auctioneers Institute CAI designation. Whitley said, “Successful auction are our business. We know that our membership in professional organizations keeps us on the leading edge of the auction profession. We are always looking for better ways to serve the needs of our auction clients.” He added, “Things like this long range planning meeting are an invaluable networking tool for us. Meeting these other auctioneers and becoming their friends gives RMEB a nation-wide network of expertise to draw from.”
