The board has been diligently working to put the convention together.  I hope you’ll all be joining us.  Founded in 1976 to address the ever changing needs of the auction industry the WAA was then and is now incredibly reliant on its members. We need and want each and every one of you to be active and heard. Know that you, your opinions and insight are valued and that without you the WAA cannot exist.
