Congratulations, Christie

I am very excited that my sister and fellow J. P. King principal Christie King will become president of the 4,000-member National Auctioneers Association during the annual NAA Conference and Show this week in Orlando. NAA represents auction firms in all 50 states and internationally. Tonight, Christie will accept the gavel as the 62nd president of NAA. She is the first NAA president from our home state of Alabama and first female president of NAA. Christie has served various roles in NAA since 1992 and is certainly well-qualified to assume the role as president of NAA.

From a personal standpoint, I am proud of Christie. When Christie came to J. P. King many years ago, she fulfilled most all positions at J. P. King and I watched her grow, develop and gain valuable auction experience. She became involved with the Alabama Auctioneers Association where she was elected president; she served on the Alabama State Board of Auctioneers, where became Chairman of the State Board. She quickly moved through the chairs of the NAA leading to her presidency. It’s been fun walking around the conference the past few days, seeing her surrounded by people here that support her. I know she’s going to do a great job. She is a good lady and a great leader. Christie, we are proud of you!!!
