Governor Sam Brownback signed a proclamation on Friday, April 19th, declaring April to be Auctioneer’s Month. Of course, this was after he asked Megan McCurdy to auction off one of his ceremonial pens as he likes to hear an auctioneer’s chant.
Meeting with him, from left to right was Aaron Traffas; Tom Lindsay, Jr.; Rick Brock, Megan McCurdy; Hope Edelman, Auxiliary; Cindi Ferguson; Richard Garvin; Kevin Ediger; Jeff Ruckert; Bill Eberhardt.
After the meeting with the governor, the KAA Board of Directors conducted their April meeting.
Don Hamit was inducted into the KAA Hall of Fame this past weekend. Scholarships were received by Vera Hall, Dylan Moore and Toby Omli from the KAA and KAAA. Richard Garvin was installed as the 2013 President; Megan McCurdy as the 2013 President Elect and Bill Eberhardt as 2013 Vice President. Cindi Ferguson will be the Executive Director for Kansas, Rick James and Robert Mayo were elected directors.
Congratulations to Mike Bailey for winning the 2013 Livestock Auctioneer Championship, held on November 13 at Plainville Livestock.
Brad Sosebee is the reserve champion, followed by Neil Bouray, Byron Bina and Dennie Flock. Also competing were Andrew Finlay, Pat Greenleaf, Jerry Hageman, Brandon Hamel, Jay Knopp and Dan McVey. Complete information about the competition can be found in the brochure.
The KAA’s Executive Committee recently met with the Kansas Department of Revenue regarding auction taxation. This content will be presented at this year’s Winter Convention, but one of the resources provided to KAA by the KDOR is a list of taxable and non-taxable items. You can view this list in the members section of this site.
Request date has changed from December 1st to November 1st this year, so get ready, set, go and request your packet.
