28th Annual NATE Convention Board & Committee Members Announcement

The National Association of Trade Exchanges (NATE) held their 28th annual convention at the Atlanta Marriott Gwinnett Place in Georgia, where trade exchanges from across the nation attended.

The convention, hosted by The Barter Company, consisted of seminars for trade exchange owners, brokers and sales representatives. Along with the seminars and discussion panels, convention attendees enjoyed the many social events planned as a means for networking including the NATE Trade Out and the awards banquet held at Whirly Ball Atlanta.

In addition, Certified Trade Broker (CTB) training was offered to attending brokers. Four brokers passed the written and oral exams and are now Registered Trade Brokers. After completing the rest of the training requirements, they will then move on to become CTBs.

NATE would like to congratulate both re-elected and new additions to the board and committees as follows:

  • Ric Zampatti of The Barter Company, was elected as NATE President.
  • Sharon Connelly of Exchange Enterprises, was elected as NATE Vice President.
  • Gary Oshry of New England Trade, was elected as NATE Treasurer.
  • Kim Ames of TradeAmericanCard, was re-elected as NATE Secretary.
  • Kenn Flemmons of Southern Barter Exchange, was elected as NATE Director.
  • Joe Prince of Barter Depot, was re-elected on the Ethics Committee.
