On each day of this year’s upcoming National Auto Auction Week, a 2018 Chapter Auction of the Year Award winner will be announced as a finalist in the running for NAAA’s Auction of the Year Award for Excellence in Community Service.
In a recent letter to NAAA members, National Auto Auction Association president Warren Clauss said that this year is the first year that the association will reveal the names of the four auctions receiving the Chapter Auction of the Year Award during National Auto Auction Week.
As a part of this year’s National Auto Auction Week running from Aug. 13 through Aug. 17, NAAA said that its partners and employees are gearing up to host and support a number of special events within the five-day time period.
“NAAA member auctions generously shared their success by donating an average of $26,000 to charity and contributing countless volunteer hours in public service,” said Clauss. “That’s something to be proud of — and an achievement worth sharing. So please join me in celebrating National Auto Auction Week by making the public aware of our industry’s many contributions.
“I encourage you to say ‘thank you’ to our partners, employees, family, friends and neighbors whose support makes all our success possible by hosting some special events,” Clauss said.
Furthermore, the week will be used to spread safety awareness and accident prevention as well, according to Clauss.
He said: “We’ll also be focusing on safety awareness and accident prevention with the message that auctions are a safe place to work and conduct business.”
