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

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.
