As a licensed auctioneer in Virginia, I’m writing to let you know that, on behalf my clients, future clients, and Virginia citizens overall, I am strongly opposed to removing regulation for our industry.
The protection DPOR Regulation provides is “necessary for the protection or preservation of the health, safety, and welfare of the public” (§ 54.1-100).
Auctioneers handle estates, assets, and escrow accounts for Virginia families and welcome the DPOR regulation to hold us accountable and keep out bad actors. DPOR regulation, licensing, and the continuing education required each year allow us to serve our clients and their families effectively.
Some highlights to consider:
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or let me know how I, or our state auctioneer association, can help share more insights that the impact this bill will have on our client citizens.
Thank you for understanding the severity of this issue for our clients and the integrity of our industry.
