NAAA Cancels Convention

By Staff Writer June 12, 2020

 

Laura Taylor, president of the National Auto Auction Association, announced the cancelation of NAAA’s 2020 annual convention in a press release.

After discussing the numerous changes to the industry because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Taylor said NAAA leadership made its decision to cancel the Dallas event.

“One change that was hard to make, but the right thing to do was the NAAA Executive Committee's decision (June 10) to cancel our 2020 Convention in Dallas this fall,” Taylor stated.

“We thought long and hard about canceling our 72nd annual meeting. I thank and applaud the executive team for taking the responsibility to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our members and their families by making that tough call.

“Although a disappointment, I don't feel that this cancellation diminishes us as an association or shakes my conviction in our resiliency. This decision displays the strength of NAAA to do what is necessary to protect the industry and always act with the best interests of our members at heart.”

Taylor added she is pleased with how the industry has adapted to the current conditions and how conversions, volumes and pricing have risen in recent weeks.
